New labs after being on HRT patch

I had a full hysterectomy back on Feb. 11. I was immediately put on HRT patch. .05 (vivelle dot). Six weeks my endo did lab work to make sure everything was okay with my synthorid dosage.

At the time of my lab I have been on 200mcg for about 6 months or so.

TSH .02
T4 - 1.84

Of course she has decreased to 188mcg and retest in 3 months. Is the patch affecting my levels? I do not have any hyper symptoms that I am aware of. I told her I felt fine, but she refused to leave the dosage as is...

I am afraid of going hypo again...

sounds like an appropriate dose decrease that may be due to change in estrogen status.
