(side note im not from UK but NZ hope thats not a problem just looking for some imformation)
At the age of 16 i was in a accident which to my luck helped my doctors find a very large goiter growing inbetween my chest. A year later the whole thing was removed along with my thyroid, parathyroid glands and a few small nicks to my vocal chords. Preping myself for this big procedure my doctor, instead of informing me on all the mircles hypothyroidism brings i was constantly reminded my weight will just "fall off". How wrong was she. i am now 22 and still trying to get my head around this whole thing. Ive battled hardcore depression, moodswings, excessive weight gain and due to the lack of my parathyroids i cramp up all the time. what didnt help was my doctor would prescribe me crazy pills and weightloss pills while taking 200mg of levothyroxine its a wonder im not in a mental ward. So as i am here im just wondering has anyone got some tips and tricks how they are battling this, or has anyone else been in the same boat. Being as young as i was when it happened or even now i have never had somebody to talk to, to just get my head around it all. x
