How are you doing today? I just read your last post to me.
I am VERY happy today because I had a pap with obgyn and talked herinot giving me the blood work up. She agreed to the whol shabang. Free t-3 and t-4 , all of it!!!!
They will not handle the thyroid issue if it is high but hey it's a start. I asked them what their idea of normal tsh numbers are on the answer was.....depends on the person and symptoms but anything over 3.0 is considered high!!!!!! Remember mine is 3.76 tpo 70.8? But you know how my gp took that.
Of course the girl at obgyn who will handle blood labs is on vacation until next week. Ob wants me to stop and pick it up to take to oncologist appt. which is Wed. afternoon. Will be easier to show him proof of thyroid problems then keep trying to find lymphoma.
I have decided on your gp Dr Delgado. ALL of my docs are in that part of AV. So the drive doesn't bother me at all. Labs are on Corwin.
But I haven't changed docs yet. You know I am just making sure the oncologist says I am done with him. If he really thanks I still have cancer then my current jerk head doc already knows about the whole case.
But if he says we are done I will make the call immediately.
Did you say your TSH level was similar to mine when you were first treated????
Something very new is strating to happen. I have already told you about my aches and pains ect. But all my fingers and toes are numb and tingling. When I get cold, which seems to happen easily they are jiserable and it takes forever to shake it out. Today at OB office they turned blue.
As you have suggested I am going to do more research on symptoms now that my OB confirms that TSH over 3.0 could indicate a problem. Never thought I would get this excited about a possible medical problem. Just want a dx so I can get on with my life.
Thanks Sue and everyone else who has helped me get to this point.
Let me know how your doing.
I will let you know how all of the levels come out
