Re: Any Papillary cancer people out there?

Hi,

I just had my thyroid removed in September with a follicular neoplasm diagnosis, which turned out to be papillary cancer in both lobes. I too was diagnosed with Hashi's just before this. After completing RAI treatment about a month later, I was started on a 150 dose of Synthroid. At my six-week check, I was at a .35 TSH level. My endo's having me wait an additional six weeks and then having more bloodwork before making any change in my meds to get me to the low .1 TSH that they use for thryoid cell growth suppression (in case there's any left).

I have not had any weight gain, but I'm cold a lot, starting to have numerous joint aches, and skipped my period for the first time since having my last child years ago.
