I am a 37 year old female and had my thyroid removed in February of this year for papillary cancer. I also had 150mci in April of this year. Since then, all blood work has been normal and am scheduled for my first yearly scan in March. Once my medication was regulated, which took about 4 to 6 months, I was much less tired and have pretty much resumed a normal life again. I believe I am more tired than I was before the surgery and often have to make myself excercise when I'd rather take a nap. I also seem to need more sleep now than before and I often don't sleep well. Of course, this could be allergy related. But I've made up my mind that these are things I'll have to live with and I'm not going to let them get me down. When did you have your surgery and treatment?
