Re: tsh level after thyroid cancer removal & concerns
I was diagnosed this past year with thyroid cancer, so I'm sure you know a lot more than I.
Did you have blood work, or a saliva test to determine your TSH as 59? I think if yours came back that high, a--you should have a blood retest, and b---if it's still so high, you probably need a higher dosage of armour. (I never heard of a TSH saliva test, maybe others here have)--but you may have to wait for your new dosage to kick in a bit.
I don't think a high TSH has anything to do with thyroid cancer recurrence---they usually test something else when your off meds, I think it's thyroglobulin??? to determine a recurrence. If you haven't had a scan in a while, you might consider asking for one just for follow up purposes, if your doctor agrees.
Hope you feel better soon!
