I was recently diagnosed with papillary cancer and have had a total thyroidectomy in 09/04. I am currently taking Cytomel for 3 weeks and then am supposed to go off of it for a week before my RAI. My oncologist did not give me any idea of how I should expect to feel over the next 3 weeks while I am on Cytomel or how I will feel during the week I am off. I know that I am feeling really tired right now and a little emotional/edgy. Will this get worse? I haven't worked in a month (I have a very stressful/demanding job and am on S/T disability). And I don't know when I should expect to go back to work. Can anyone shed any light for me? I really appreciate your support and feedback!!
