Re: One Year Later After Thyroid Cancer
Congratulations! I too am 1 yr out of thyroid cancer surgery. I had a complete thyroidectomy with a 2.5cm mass removed. I had my full body scan in Oct 09; went off synthroid for 2 weeks and neve felt better! I felt like I used to feel years ago. My mind was alert, less fatigue on a daily basis, slept better at night, no night sweats....overall I felt wonderful! I hated to re-start the meds.
I told my oncologist about how I felt off the meds and my dosage was reduced....I still feel nutty and fatigued and also have rapid heart beats occassionally, but what can I do? I love living!
Everyone's body is different in how it adapts to meds....I hope you don't have such a hard time being off yours and also, I wish you a positive, clear body scan.
