after total thyroidectomy

Hello! I am one week past a total thyroidectomy. I was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma. I am not on medications, as I will have to go through radioactive iodine treatments. It sounds like it could be a while before I can get on meds. So, as of yet, I don't feel any different. Maybe a little worse in the memory dept. but otherwise, my energy level is fine, and I haven't noticed anything different. My question to you all is, how long after surgery does a person start to feel the effects of being hypothyroid. Do some people not have issues with this, or is my hypothyroid hell still coming? I am happy for anyones input on this. Thanks

My surgeon put me on Levoxyl the day of my surgery - I didn't have the RAI until about 6 months after, to give my body time to adjust.  I still went through hypo symptoms about 2 weeks later but the most severe only lasted a few months until  they got the dosage set.

Will be praying all goes well with you!!
