I contacted my endocrinologist yesterday and he will see me in 8 weeks. (unless I'm having any problems). Until then, I need to continue my Synthroid (0.137 MG). When I see him I'll get my bloodwork done and any med changes as necessary. I read about calcium problems after total removal of the thyroid. If I start having any "tingling" feelings I'll call my dr. and let him know.
My big concern is anemia. I've had an ongoing anemia problem for several years (non-specific).
When I had my surgery Tuesday my hemoglobin was 8. Before surgery, I had to have my blood typed incase I needed a transfusion. (luckly I didn't need one).
Today I feel very tired. I know it's my iron level. I take iron (Nu-Iron) regularly. I take the iron separate from my thyroid medicine, but I still have an absorbtion problem.
If I feel worse Monday I'll call my regular internal med doc. She can run my bloodwork to check my hemo and ferriten level.
The good news is.........I had a grilled cheese sandwich last night and a bowl of Cheerio's this morning. I sat out on my patio and watched the humming birds "fight" over their feeder. I have a least a half a dozen humming birds that visit my feeders and they are a "hoot" to watch.
