wish id never had this operation.i had a large(non cancerous) nodule in the front of my throat and a goiter that had grown up behind my ear and wrapped itself around the collar bone and into my chest cavity so had no choice but to have it removed.my surgeon recommended that they leave a bit in on the right side of the thyroid in to see if this would be enough to work without the need for medication.The operation was just over 2 hours and went very well.
7 weeks on i feel terrible.I am usually full of energy and a happy go lucky person but since having this op im sad,irritable,depressed and cant be bothered with anything or anyone at all,i wanna argue about everything but at the same time cant be bothered to argue.im either boiling hot or freezing cold.i get leg cramps in the night.i have ulcers in my mouth,ive gained over a stone which could be partially because i gave up smoking the same day as the op and my hair is thinning.i had blood done 5 weeks after the op and dr has said my levels are normal.My TSH level was 2.34 and was assured by the "recepionist" this is normal.
am i alone feeling like this?and is this how im going to feel for always?
any advice would be gratfully recieved.
