TSH at 56; need questions for endo
Hi! I just had a thyroidectomy Feb 6th and started taking Levothyroxine. Stage 2 - over 3cm encapsulated nodule that was positive for papillary cancer and I'm 45 yo.
I haven't seen the endo yet, just the surgeon. On Tues the 14th I see the endo. I don't know what questions to ask, and I don't understand Tg, t3 t4, or really, why TSH at 56 (my recent test) is bad. It makes me hypothyroid? I feel pretty much OK.
So I am lacking education re: this issue.
I think I'm not taking my pill correctly: I don't give it 60 or even 30 minutes on an empty stomach and I don't always take it in the morning, and maybe the dose is too small.
