I had the right side of my thyroid removed in May ( this year )
4 weeks after my op I had blood tests and my surgeon started me
on 25 mcg of Synthroid , then two weeks later 50 mcg , then 2 weeks later 75mcg ,
now 4 weeks after that I'm on 88mcg , yesterday I had more blood test
and am seeing the specialist on Friday to see how I am doing and if i need
more ( I think I do as i feel rough
) each time my endo raised
my medication was always after blood tests ..
maybe you could ask your doctor again re meds ?
ALSO I agree with midwest , I ( and other people ) do have odd reactions
to synthroid so I would most defiantly question starting at
137 mgs !
Good luck and I hope your not feeling to bad .....
