Thyroid cancer

I have had both left and right side of my thyroid removed seperately within 2 weeks of each other as I was diagnosed with carcinoma hurthle cell cancer.
The cancer had not spread and I was lucky, now 5 months later I have had radiation iodine therapy etc but still have the following problems.

1. Aches and pains in my joints
2. Aches and pain in my legs
3. Putting on weight
4. Very tired but slowly improving
5. Throat tightens when I am stressed or tired

I have seen an endrocrinologist to guide me through my journey but I need to know if any one else has my problems as doctors only say that time will heal.

Need other opinions

Regards Vince

Re: Thyroid cancer

Is your tsh kept suppressed---those symptoms don't sound as much cancer related as undermedicated?
