Re: Confusion over advice of two doctors

Thank you, I have had only two test The following was requested by the doctor who did the operation, the sheet reads
calcium 9.9 (in range) reference range 8.5-10.4 mg/dl
T4,free 1.5 (in range) reference range 0.8-1.8 mg/dl
TSH W/free T4 RFX
TSH 0.18 (out of range) L 0.40-5.50 MIU/L

the second test request by my primary doctor show the following
TSH 0.35 (out of range) L reference range 0.40-5.50 mIU/L
In neither testing did they do a TF3 or a TF4 testing only the T4
The doctor who did the operation put me on a generic sub synthroid 100 MCG and after seeing the test results told me to take another 1/4 tablet(did you ever try to cut those tiny pills in to quarters) When I went to my primary doctor she looked over the test result and said my dose was to high and to not increase it, she said she would do another test at the end of June. I dont know how knowledgeable she is on the thyroid. It was another doctor who found the second round the tumors. I have never been on any thyroid medication before even though I have had so many of the signs. It always seemed to be in "the range" I was really hoping that the removal and being on medication would make things better, so far, I feel worst.

Thanks for listenting I hope I gave you enough to give me some opinions.
