I’m new to the forum, and hope someone can give me some information about gastric bypass surgery and hyperthyroidism.
I’m hyperthyroid, and believe or not, I have a significant weight problem. What I’ve been told increased metabolism (aren’t you suppose to lose weight, I didn’t get that lucky) increased appetite, increased weight gain. I went undiagnosed for months. I even had a thyroid storm, and was told I was stressed and detoxing off Ativan. Got a primary doctor, actually a nurse practitioner, who diagnosed first time I saw her. So I’m hyperthyroid, treated with antithyroid med. Graves‘ disease with goiter and nodules. Endocrinologist told me I should have my thyroid removed.After much reading, I’ve decided not to. Weight gain after thyroidectomy. This last summer I went on the Keto diet, losing maybe 10 pounds. In my research to find out why I wasn’t losing weight, I found out the thyroid medication I’m on causes weight gain and makes it difficult to lose it. I’m desperate to lose weight. I’m wondering if I would be a candidate for gastric sleeve?
