I had my initial surgery in 1996 subtotal thyroidectomy for suspicious follicular ademoma, with no treatment or meds after.
in 2006 I found another lump, FNA discovered papillary carcinoma follicular variant.So off to surgery I went to remove the rest of my thyroid. the post op scan showed star pattern in the thyroid bed and ablation was decided upon.131 radiation.
Otherwise all had been well. I was on 162 (137+25) of levoxyl and for a year and felt fine, Thyrogen test at a year was good. Stayed on 162 for another6-8 months and they decided to start lowering it,. It was strange that over the nonths the TSH remained very low despite continually reducing the dose of meds. Finally they did a thyroblobulin and it is o.3 ,thyroglobulin antibody were <30. Which is a chang from the one done some time ago. (this is with out any supression just with the lowering of the levoxyl which is now at 112) and my TSH is .5. I have just not been feeling well and this elevation of the thyroglobulin has got me a little nervous. I am to repeat the test on Monday ( same lab as alwyas). Could this be a lab error ...or is somewthing going on??? I have never had a chset xray ,I have noted that in some protocols chest xrays are done periodically. Has any one else had the chest x-rays..I am loosing sleep over this. I send my results off to a Doctor at the University and it usually takes weeks to get a response..UGH!
