I just had a thyroidectomy and all my endocrinologist is giving me is cytomel. I am exhausted and have gained about 5 pounds in two weeks. I can not even get an appointment with my endocrinologist to discuss this because his nurse keeps telling me "we will call you when your pathology comes back" My pathology already came back, and my surgeon told me I have cancer in my lymph nodes as well. I am so scared and confused (not about the cancer- about the weight gain and fatigue). I just feel like this is all too much to deal with. I have tried to research the medication on the internet and am considering changing endocrinologist. I don't think I am getting the correct medication, but its all very confusing. My thyroid cancer was discoverd by chance during a parathyroidectomy. I am already over 60 pounds overweight, I can't afford to gain anymore.

I had been taking prednisone but weaned myself off. I am in pain most of the time and very...
