When my thyroid level will calm down to normal?

Question

So I have a question kinda. I had my thyroid completely removed in june. I have been on all kinds of meds. Thyroid level is still 181 not sure what test that was but dr said it is extremely high.. I was taking 2 grain of armour now they swapped me back to 137 synthroid. It didn’t work before but maybe now. I feel horrible completely drained, can’t sleep I feel like I’ve gained more weight. Any idea on when my thyroid level will calm down to normal? I had surgery June 17.. I also have hashimotos that is kicking my butt it feels like..

  1. I would be happy to help, can you get a copy of your latest labs and post them? I’m not a doctor but I have been without a thyroid for 8 years so I have experience with numbers and meds.

  2. I have a thyroid but ive been on synthyroid at 175mcg for 15 years. I would immagine your situation is similar to mine. Levels go up and down. Try not to stress about it. Be delligent in taking your meds and seeing the doc. It will probably be a bit before your body stabalizes. Shit i have swings all the time. Hopefully you have understanding support of family and friends. This disease is a struggle every day. Remember to listen to your body, de stress and dont eat garbage food. Also lots of water.

  3. You may need a higher dose of Synthroid and probably need to add T 3 Cytomel. Your Armour had some T3 in it but now you are not taking any. I advocate for Synthroid and Cytomel over Armour.

  4. My levels just go up they have not been down since the surgery. Hashimotos had attacked and killed my thyroid it was hard as a rock. I am trying to get my lab to see what was what.

  5. Had my thyroid removed Jan, 2015. TSH at last labs were 165, Dr upped my Nat ure Throid, t4 is 5.4…also had All 4 parathyroid glands removed. I feel your pain…I consider myself one of the “walking dead”.. let me know what your Dr tries

  6. You may need a different dose of Synthroid and probably need to add T 3 Cytomel (Liothyronine). Your Armour had some T3 and T4 in it but now you are not taking any T3 by being on Synthroid alone. I also advocate for Synthroid and Cytomel over Armour. T3 is what helps me with energy and reduces the fatigue!

  7. It took about 4-5 months after my surgery to start feeling normal. They adjusted my medication for about 2 years.
