Hi Normally post surgery as some thyroid always left, is treated the same way as pre surgery. ie on blood results. Good you had T4 and Free T3 but also need TSH. More important the ranges for those test, and any others, all ranges differ. it is also very early days aftect the OP , and it does take a while to settle. I would be more inclined to check my Iorn/Ferritin, B12 and Foliates, vit D and glucose.Then wait a litle while. At the moment you are bound to feel rotten anyway,

Best wishes,
