Please know that I'll gladly help you with labs, etc. at another time if that's better for you (I'm sure you have your focus on your upcoming surgery).
I do think you'll want to take a closer look at your labs because people who are optimally medicated on meds like Synthroid will have TSH 1.0 or lower.
Hopefully, when it's best for you to address your labs here, you'll also have FreeT4 and FreeT3 test results to share. We would need to also see the reference ranges for these results because, unlike the TSH test, different labs use different ranges so your results can only be properly interpreted within the context of your lab's ranges.
As documented in countless medical resources and also mentioned in "Thyroid for Dummies" (written by an endo), the FreeT4 and FreeT3 are the best tests to evaluate thyroid function. Those results (not TSH) should be used for dosing purposes.
I've also read what Reece had to share about RAI not always being done. I couldn't remember the details and certainly did not want to mention something I wasn't sure about.
I wish you the utmost success in your journey and will keep thinking positive thoughts.
