I wanted to let you guys know my surgery went very well. It only my surgeon an 1 ½ to complete my TT. When they woke me in recovery my blood pressure shot up sky high and they had to give me 3 different kinds of medz to bring it back down, however they said this was normal after surgery. My Calcium levels were fine, which I take calcium supplements with vitamin D in it on a regular basis because it is good for you, as well I take iron and women’s one a day regular vitamins. They also had the nurses giving me calcium while I was in the hospital; which was about 24 hrs. My surgeon removed my whole thyroid and lymph nodes.
I hope you guys do not kick me out of your discussion board, yet I am proud to say they found NO CANCER =) I am very happy about that, however it did surprise me given all the signs of the testing’s that had been done were leaning towards cancer, so YEAH for ME, I am very HAPPY.
One thing I have had problems with since the surgery is using the bathroom. Urination is so hard I practically have to force myself to go and my bladder is so full my stomach is bloated yet the urine doesn’t want to come out =( I was thinking that maybe it might just be my kidneys going into shock from removal of the thyroid, but a week later it is still hard to go! I am on 125mcg of synthroid and I weigh 175 lbs. Does this sound about right? I do not know too much about the medicine part of this process. Why is it so hard for me to urinate? I see my Doc on tomorrow so hopefully she can figure out for sure what’s going on with my kidneys.
Thanks so much for all the thoughts, wishes and prayers from you ALL,
