Hello, on 8/31/12 I had a total thyroidectomy for a Stage 1 Papillary thyroid cancer. I was released from the hospital with 100 cmg of syndroid and a lot of calcium. No RAI treatment needed per doctor's advice. I'm 5'2 and weight about 119lbs. First 3 weeks post surgery were horrible: sweats; sleepless nights; tired; anxiety; panic attacks etc. Blood work for TSH showed a 2.2 level on 9/15/12. ON Monday 10/22/12 I was due for another round to blood work and this time my TSH was 10.48....My dose has not been changed since I got out of the hospital due to all the symtoms I had......For the past 6 weeks I've been feelign better, I don't have any severe symtoms except that I'm loosing a lot of hair and I also have itchy scalp. Can enyone tell me if they've experience anything like this with their TSH? Why did it go sooo high in a matter of 4 weeks? from 2.2 to 10.48.....I'm taking the med every day at 3:30 - 4AM and then around 6:30-7AM I'm taking my omeprazole for heartburn so I can eat (I'm also a type 1 diabetic). Should I be avoiding any food that may cause the med not to absorb properly? What could be wrong?
