hi I had a total thyroidectomy two weeks ago. I felt great for the first three days but then I started experiencing fatigue, and dizziness. By the 5th day I had a strange reaction to what I think was the thyroxine, I started to go really reall dizzy, red, hot to touch and then came out in hives. Since then the doctor has taken me off thyroxine, it's been a week and I feel worse then ever! I've started to experience weeping which is not me and the worse thing my ankles and other body parts have been swelling to the point were it is antagonising to move the joints. I tried to discuss this with my new endo who has basically giving me the cold shoulder. He took some blood test and apparently my tsh is suppressed so I don't need any thyroxine for the next three weeks, I feel confused and angry at the lack of empathy and information he has given me, has anyone else experienced these type of symptoms after thyroidectomy. Thanks in advance
