I have always been a big girl, but after my thyroid removal(2/2013) and treatment(3/2013) I keep gaining weight. The doctor ran blood work two weeks ago and my thyroid level looks great, and will be running another round in four weeks. I feel horrible, tired, keep gaining weight, and I keep getting these horrible headaches. I am on 200mcg Levothroxin. I have gain approx 25lbs since my surgery and treatment and it is making me feel even worse about myself. I haven't changed anything diet wise so I am at a loss.
I feel so lucky that everything was found when it was because I had no signs. A nodule was found when I wanted to check my lungs because I am an exsmoker and wanted an early look. I will also tell you due to family history I will be having more scans because your greatest chance of surviving is the early detection.
Thank you in advance for any advise
