Yes...I go both up and down with my weight. I had the whole bow-tie, both my thyroid and isthmus removed because of cancer in 2003.

The only thing that has been helpful to me is having my Thyroid Panel done (TSH, Free T3 & Free T4) to make sure that my levels were as close to normal as possible. If they get too far off then we adjust my thyroid hormones.

I don't know if this is correct...but I've been told that because I only have one parathyroid that my levels will never be normal. They will always be slightly off. So I really try to compensate with nutrition and exercise.

I hope this helps.  :)
