I recently had my thyroid removed 08/14/09 and am taking 125mcg of synthroid. My doctor told me I should lose some weight, but I have done nothing but gain since my surgery. Any advice or suggestions would be great.
I also had my thyroid removed and am having trouble losing weight. My dr. has me on 125mcg of synthroid and also 112. I alternate every other day. All of my bloodwork comes back good and my cancer markers are good but I cannot seem to lose more than 2-4 pounds. I have tried weight watchers where I had success before my cancer but now nothing works. I also would appreciate any advice. My job is very stressful and I know that doesn't help but I don't have control over that.
