HI everyone, I had a total thyroid (Papillary Carcinoma) on 12/13. I am only 7 days post op and I have to say I am feeling pretty good. I am currently taking cytomel and not feeling any weird side effects that I hear others speak about. I just want to let others know that there are a lot of negative posts all over the internet about how people feel post op and they really had me discouraged. I swore I wouldn't feel good for years. Everyone is different, so just remember that there are positive outcomes as well. It's not all doom and gloom !! I feel better than I have in years. I was not on thyroid meds before surgery, I'm wondering if maybe I did need them after all. I am so thankful for all the love and encouragement I have received through this website. Happy Holidays to all !!
