Dizzy After Thyroid Surgery
I just had thyroid surgery on Wed. June 24th and they took out the left and almost all of the right lobes. It was not cancerous, but I had nodules on both sides. I was put on Tylenol 3 for pain, synthroid 100 mg once a day, and calcium 3 times a day (Calcium is just for a few weeks.) Ever since I came home, I have felt very dizzy - like vertigo all day. I stopped the tylenol 3 thinking that it was the codine, but even after 24 hours of no codine, I still feel very dizzy. I don't have any neck pain, it is all a very dizzy feeling. Could it be the synthroid or calcium or ????? I am having a hard time, just not staying in bed to keep from feeling dizzy!
Thanks,Tara

It could be a number of things...
side effects from the anaesetic
low blood pressure
high blood pressure
tinitis
also hypothyroidism and it will take a few weeks for the T4 med to get yr levels back up to scratch.

I just had my thyroid removed on July 27 and you have described me to a tee!! It seems better to keep moving then sit still and relax. It can't be the synthroid because i took that before the surgery with no problems and the calcium i doubt would be it. i had blood drawn today so hopefully tomorrow ill know something.
