I just want to hear from someone who has had a total thyroidectomy that can say “yep, I feel normal afterwards” because I’m pretty sure I’m going nuts.
Nope, I feel ya!
It takes at least six months to even feel human again. Normal… we have a new normal now. But it doesn’t have to be bad. It just takes what seems like forever to get there. It has been almost two years for me and I now feel mostly good <3
Troublesome Thyroid and Doctor
I went to the doctor on Thursday to do my quarterly follow up for my thyroid (or lack thereof). It did not go as planned.
For me, grave’s and thyroidectomy due to an eventually benign nodule. I’ve had to fire doctors and a surgeon who tried to kill me with a shot of iodine for a ct scan (horray!) make sure you always read all your paperwork! I’d switch docs. Finding someone you like and who will listen is SO important for us, sadly, this isn’t going away. For a while I felt like endocrinology only cared about the diabetes people and were just kind of stuck with us, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Hang in there!
