You probably won't need meds with 1/2 left. I read somewhere that about 50% of the people with 1/2 never need them - I have a 2nd cousin who is 90 -had 1/2 out YEARS ago - she can't remember when - and has never needed any. The 50% I think included people who had other problems - and sometimes it would be 10 years or more before some people needed them - so, of course, keep an eye on it - the docs may not!

Thanks for asking, Bernie. No , not yet um..............well the doc says they are but my body says they are not. Went from a 75 to an 88 mcg levo dose recently and there MAY be a slight improvement. He was so reluctant to give me a boost - ya know "some use this med for weight loss"!! like give me a break!! Also, "T4 does it all" so am going to a different doc May 9 - til then just hanging in there. BTW - pay attention to the foods to avoid
- almonds did a number on me a couple days ago.
Keep up the recuperation - DRINK THE WATER - massage the neck and roll your head around every so often. Read the THINGS WE CAN DO post - I copied it to my word doc. You want to keep your thyroid functioning on its own.
SEE, we told you this is a nothing operation!
