Re: High TSH after thyroidectomy -- help!
It's really hard to know what you're right dosage is, so your doctor is trying to raise it slowly, it's not safe to raise it too quickly. 6 weeks is a normal time period to test blood and give an increase. But since you had a thyroid removed, your doctor could have dosed you much higher, and you wouldn't have had to go hypo at all.
That being said, you are a male, if you are of decent size, and you are replacing an entire thyroid, your ultimate levels could be in the mid to upper 200 or lower 300's. I think your ENT is managing this very poorly, should have started you higher, and you should try to get on a waiting list of an endo, or even a regular doctor can treat thyroid, for full thyroid replacement.
At this pace, you will definitely get there, but it's going to take a while.
