post thyroidectomy issues

hello! I am 10 days post thyroidectomy now, and am feeling OK but have been having some weirder issues that my doctor isn't quite sure exaclty what's up with me. I have the usual numbness around the incision, and my energy is still off but I am able to do.some light work around the house and brief outings. I have been experiencing some jaw pain and odd hot/cold spells. I also am not sure about how to explain my odd feelings, but its like being on cold meds, and my breathing is s little strained when I'm talking to people. Before the surgery I had no breathing problems or jaw issues. I'm certainthe temperature changes and feeling off are part of the unbalanced hormones in myy body, but.wont be able to get.on synthroid until after my RAI. Any inputnwoild be nice, I tootle these symptoms but nothing matches completely.

Re: post thyroidectomy issues

why don't you start on meds, and ask for thyrogen---no need to suffer? Worst case you can go on cytmel until 2 weeks before rai if you don't want thyrogen---but I would push for thyrogen.

Cool Re: post thyroidectomy issues

I wasn't aware of this, I'll ask my Endo next week at my apt. It's just frustrating to not be able to control this weird feeling! Thanks for the suggestion!
