TT and sleep issues
I had a TT in 2005 - 8cm Hurthle cell adenoma on one side, tall cell cancer on the other. No issues with the surgery other than temporary numbness in the hands, which faded after calcium administration. I was on full replacement thyroid hormone prior to surgery, now taking 200mcg daily.
Prior to the surgery, I slept like a dead bear. Fell asleep quickly, slept through the night. Ever since the surgery, I can fall asleep (though not as quickly), but after 2 or 3 hours, I wake up. Then back to sleep, only to wake up in an hour, hour and a half. My sense is that I wake 4-6 times a night. Don't think its apnea, i.e., I don't 'startle' awake, no breathing problems, shortness of breath, no snoring, etc. I'm usually up for the day by 4:00, having gone to bed at 10-10:30.
Anyone else feel like they just don't sleep well after their TT? Anything working for you to solve this problem?
