Hi there!

A complete thyroid profile along with thyroglobulin levels may be suggested for follow up of papillary carcinoma. While the thyroid profile is ideally done within a few days/ weeks, the thyroglobulin levels are typically checked after a few weeks/ months. I would suggest discussing the situation and the management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I am not sure why they didn't start you on replacement therapy right away? Please keep us posted.
