I had a total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago and am getting cytomel but no thyroid medication. I don't know why. I feel so fatigued and bloated. Am I not supposed to be getting synthroid or something? Also I am craving salt. Can anybody share the medical treatment they got right after thyroidectomy and why? I have not been able to get through to my endocrinologist and his nurse keeps saying "they will call me when my pathology comes back". My surgeon said it already came back and I have thyroid cancer in my lymph nodes. And is it crazy that I am way more worried about weight gain then I am about cancer?
