I had a Thyroidedtomy some 36 years ago, removing 3/4 of each side of thyroid, due to being over active. I was not prescribed any medication since then, up until a year gone April when went for routine thyroid blood test, it showed borderline underactive, was prescribed 50mg levothyroxine which I took for about 3 weeks and weight gain was horrendous, needless to say didn't take as should have done. Wasn't called for further blood tests, until aoctober this year I made an appt for blood test. Came back borderline, Doc rang me to say was ai religiously taking it, and I wrongfully said YES, which ment she increased dosage to 75mg, so I was painicking as she wants another blood test in 6weeks, so took the 50mg for 2 weeks and again my weight went up horrendously, and to be honest felt quite unwell, have arthritis in knees so extra weight not good. I walk 5miles a day and felt worse after taking the tblts. I have an appt on Monday with another doc to discuss and I do not know what road to go down, any help would be greatly appr coated. thank You XX
