Yeah it is, I have not done my follow check to see what my levels are and for my TSH. I guess I will try next week. Overall I'm good, moods are good, life is good, just the tired part. I have started using prescription eye drops and cool compresses on my eyes. It seems to help, so I am wondering is it overall fatigue or eye fatigue mixed with allergies that makes my eyes burn and for me to want to fall asleep? We shall see :) Glad to hear you are well sister. I hope to hear from you again soon. XOXO

Sorry, I meant a doctor who will treat you ...who you are and what your symptoms are 110%, not treat yo by blood labs and go yup...you should be fine. I have seen many people who have posted they had hard times and som close to break downs from doctors who refused to treat symptoms instead of lab results. XOXO

I would go to a new endro. I would search for one who matches you and your needs. I am on my second one. I am one of a couple of TT patients she has worked with, so I am not holding my breath for her to be an expert. Have you checked with any others who had the surgery with the robotic system they operated on you with? I know it seems silly, but think of acupuncture, nerves relate to other nerves, is it possible they pinched or disrupted a nerve that has your system worked up? I would also look at the possibility it is taking you longer to be over the hypo hell portion, it is VERY awful on us mentally and physically. I find myself still emotionally sensitive, more than BEFORE the hpyo/RAI treatment. Find an endro who treats you by symptoms, you you are in every way, and not just your labs.

Just a quick note to say hi! I hope you are doing better than before. I know you said you were watching me to gauge your progress since we are so close in treatment dates. I wanted to give you a heads up...the last two days I have been feeling very energized! My house is spotless and I even went on a one mile walk two days in a row with the family. Hopefully four weeks post RAI is the right amount of time to start feeling better :)

my nuclear med doctor told me it would be "weeks" until I started returning to "normal". I think once we are pushed into hypo hell it hurts us, slows us and causes use more damage then even the doctors know how to measure. Now it's time that heals up and gets us back to normal. You have been doing well to track your symptoms and keep the doctors informed. Keep on doing that, none of us are exactly the same so don't let them treat you from a textbook view. XOXO

Just a quick note to say hi! How are you doing my RAI buddy? Have you acquired any super powers yet? I found I have the super power of power napping! OK well it isn't awesome like being able to fly or having super strength, but it's still new. :) Hope you are doing well :)

Hope you feel better soon!  You *ARE* normal - they just need to get that TSH under control and the racing heart may settle down with it.  If not they may need to tweak some beta blockers or something.  Hang in there - this stuff is *rough*!  HUGS!!!!   (and soak in warm tubs - it helps with the aches and chills)

hey, yeah well I don't work here but my family moved here to teach English so I just followed. Well, I didn't get info for my diet from the nuclear medicine dept, but I looked online for info, and I had RAI last March so I have an idea of what I can and cannot eat. I just needed a little brush up since it's been a year.

You deserve a big bear hug!  Glad you made it through.  Hang on for the next 4-6 weeks (until your TSH comes back down) 'cause it can still be rough.   HUGS to you my friend!!!

Hope you feel better soon! This part is the toughest, being still on the hypoi side, High TSH messing with our emotions, isolation of RAI, the reality that we ate something "toxic" willingly, sick of having no control...I cried, I got angry, I was a ball of emotions and I;m guessing your feeling some of that too. Just take it one day at a time. After the first 4 days you start to feel less like an isolated lab rat and more like you again...promise!! XOXO

You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. You are on your way to the other side of this mess. We're all thinking of you today. It's been 15 days for me since I took the "pill" and I am still sleeping in my own room on an air mattress because I am neurotic LOL
