My endo left early this year and now his replacement is gone. We have a shortage of endocrinologists here and have been told it could take several months to get in to see one. If this is the case...I want to make sure I have the correct levels required for cancer survivors to give to my doctor. As I know it is not the same standard as non-cancer. Please need to know TSH, T3, T4 and anything else I maybe missing.
I am so discouraged. After a year and 2 1/2 months since my RAI I thought maybe I was starting to feel better. I had a reaction to decongestant with my Synthroid as well as Prilosec. I think it made me super hyper and at first I felt better and then ended up in hospital having to have my heart and everything tested and on oxygen because I could not breathe. I now know it was that I can't take decongestant and Prilosec with my Synthroid. But now I am back to feeling sluggish, in pain, fuzzy thinking and depressed. I can't continue taking synthroid, so thinking of having family doc switch me to Armour. Or pushing to include T3/Synthroid combo. I take 275 mcg of synthroid daily and it is not helping me.
Help would be very appreciated....thank you.
