I am having panic attacks at times, other times I am very lethargic, I find it hard to work a full time job. I have also had issues with my menstruat cycle that are different than when I had my thyroid. I have gained alot of weight and found the only diet to work is the Atkins diet. I tried eating better and exercising, but didn't lose even a pound. Is there anyone else having these symptoms? I was diagnosed in 2004 and had the second half of my thyroid removed in 2005. The last time I saw my Dr. I told her I wish I hadn't had it removed due to the issues I am having now vs. the ones I had (which wasn't any) prior to my surgery. Of course she reminded me that if I didnt' have the surgery it would have spread to my brain and back. I don't regret the surgery anymore but I just don't know how to keep it together some days. I have hurthle cell cancer. Does anyone else have these problems and if so how do you deal with it?
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
