Re: Aren't you supposed to start replacement meds after total thyroidectomy?
Hope you are doing well by now??
I had a total done in 2000 and started on meds pretty soon after.
One thing I didn't know was that one needs to have levels (thyroid panels) done at least every 3 months. One year, out of the blue, I had palpitations, anxiety, dizziness.
I had become hyper ....and doc had to drop my meds by 3 doses and gradually increase. I have an excellent endocrinologist. He said sometimes with NO thyroid, it can be more difficult to maintain good TSH levels. Now I alternate taking .112 and .125 Synthroid. .112 too low and .125 to high, alternating days, just right. My TSH is in 2+ range.
