It depends somewhat on your dosage, but not taking it for a week can definitely have an effect.  If you have a look through this list of typical hypo symptoms, I think you will find a few that are familiar.  

What type of cancer did you go through?  The reason I ask is to better understand how it affected your thyroid.

In preparation for your doctor visit tomorrow, if you will post your thyroid test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report, members will be glad to comment on the adequacy of testing and treatment, and advise further.
