Were you placed on hormone therapy after the surgery? You might want to get your thyroid tested to see if it's functioning properly. If it's not, this can cause weight gain and it can be hard to lose weight also.

Are you seeing an Endo Dr to be treated for your thyroid? Are they testing not only your TSH but, also your FT3, FT4 and antibodies?

Sorry about that. I pressed the reply button before I finished. I've never heard of Lipden. If you can't afford it you might try contacting the company that makes it. Some times you can get the med at a reduced rate or for free depending on your income.
