Hi All, I havent been on here for ages, I was feeling soo bad last many months taking 40mg carbizamole in 5mg doses, was draining plus the goitre got very large, was having trouble swallowing slightly, I looked grey in colour, my hair on the top of my head was gone limp and sparse, the exhaustion was undescribable but im sure many reading this understand that, I was only existing through each day, no motivation or inclination to do anything beyond what was needed, so my endo decided the goitre had to come out there was no let up on my symptoms my tsh was practically moving between 22 and 54, down to 17 up to 38 it was constant so I went for surgery a week ago today, i am nearly afraid to say how good i am feeling for fear ill jinx anything tremors gone, overheat gone, eyes look normal, neck tiny etc etc. The surgeon said it was a tricky surgery as the goitre was huge much bigger than he had previously envisaged, as soon as the evening time came and I got up to go to the bathroom I could feel strength in my bones that i hadnt felt in a long time, i looked good (no large lump in my neck...i wasnt looking that good!!), today i can swallow with ease, yes i have the tightness of course but my neck is tiny and i feel human, i feel really really good, i am on eltroxin 150mcg, for the moment until my blood work is done in a few weeks, i dont need the pain meds for a few days, i can eat as normal its great, the surgery went great, my parathyroids and vocal chords were kept intact, calcium levels were normal throughout and after so i think Siobhan is back, or even a new one! I am going to go on a nourishing tonic in a few months to cleanse my system this time two weeks ago i was in hte horrors feeling so bad, crying getting up in the morning with tiredness after sleeping all night, now I feel ive a pep in my step, any tips from here on in would be appreciated, i know i may battle with weight gain from here on in but ive had a lot of weight gain on hte carbizamole, i had 7 pounds gained the week before surgery alone so as long as i am keeping an eye on my diet and get back to my previously enjoyed walks, it should be fine, anything is better than what i have suffered anyway, thanks everyone!
