Any Papillary cancer people out there?

So here I am again, it seems that most everyone here has Hypo or Hashi's. Initially I was diagnosed with Hashi's but 4 wekks later I had my thyroid taken out due to papillary carcinoma. So now my doc has me on.137 mcg of levothyroxine. I feel good except I've gained some wait but I can live with now in March I will go back to have repeat scans to make sure the cancer that I still have has not spread (very confident that it hasn't) Any way My endo says that after you've had your thyroid removed yu need to be hyper to prevent your body from producing more something or tsh level is .184 and when I first went to my endo last year in Jan. it was 3.2...So is there anyone else out there like me??
