I have just received my first bloodtests post TT surgery. I am still very hypothyroid (12) after a month of levothyroxine so have now doubled my dose (up to 200mcg).. is this about the average dose after a TT? Also, 2nd question ..my T4 is also elevated (18) which supposedly indicates hyperthyroid? I know the aim for the cancer suppression is to become hyperthyroid (TSH below 0.2), but the TSH reads hypothyroid, so the results are contadictory? Has anyone had this and what was the feedback? I vaguely remember hearing in the past about the T4 not converting to T3 in some cases- could this be the problem? Anyway, just thought someone may have some answers! My thyroglobulin (with no RAI) is 4.1 and we will now use this as my base value to check for possible recurrence of the cancer. Generally feeling OK, had really sore glands still until a day or two ago( surgery 7 wks ago), getting really tired in evenings and metavolism is non-existent- suppose will be the case until levels are stabilised (hypothyroid).
