Please post your FT3 and FT4 results along with reference ranges that vary lab to lab and have to come from your own lab report.  

TSH is a pituitary hormone and not nearly as important as FT3 and FT4 in determining thyroid status.  

How long were you hypo (a good guess is fine)?    Do you know if you have Hashi's?

The whole purpose of treating hypothyroidism is to relieve hypo symptoms.  So the key question would be whether you still have lingering hypo symptoms or not.

Also, please post your thyroid test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report so members can assess your status further.
