Hello, first congratulations for getting through tx! Are you being treated for your thyroid problem? The tx can cause problems with the thyroid. During my tx my thyroid got that high. It quickly returned to normal. Have you seen your liver doctor to discuss? I know that people have had problems after treating and it takes a while to recover, normally as time goes on they do get better. But..if they don't then the patient needs to treat each symptom as a different occurrence. After treating I was losing a lot of hair, I thought it was the tx and part of it was but the other part that my TSH was very high which indicated I needed more medication. I wasted time thinking it was all the tx. Good luck Dee
