Not sure how long I have had this issue during or post treatment, but my ONC had my thyroid tested in December. Test results were not covered with me until this past Thursday when I had my yearly with my PCP and asked him if everything had turned out ok. Guess my counts were off on my TSH..normal between .36 - 3.74....mine was a whopping 5.14. My TH was .83, and normal range .76-1.46. I have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.
Anyone else have this fairly common condition following radiation to the head and neck? Any advice, guidance, or "what to expects" you can share? So far, it sounds as if this is a simple fix. Any real life experience out there?
