Re: pap cancer,TT, going hypo (for RAI...again! ) Nobody understands...

You are absolutely welcome to vent-----it might not hit you for another week, or two, or three........

It really sucks, I was like that for about 6 weeks, no meds at all, it was tough, but I knew each day brought me closer to my treatment, and then closer to being back on meds!

Ask for some cytomel when you go back on, it may help ramp you back up quicker.

I worked, but I was working from home, so I didn't have to look good, and as long as I got my work done, it was fine. By week 5 I was really dragging. I don't know that I could have been a teacher in weeks 5 and 6 ---- but you never know what you can do until you try.

I maybe gained about 3 pounds tops, and it came off pretty quick by itself.

I called it "radiation" for friends, and they did come through with some meals and stuff for my family.

Good luck, we're here for you....remember every day brings you closer to getting it overwith!
