thyroid cancer

Hello. Just wanted to see if anyone can help me or give me some inputs. I had a thyroid cancer 1.5 years ago. The doctor removed my thyroid. The cancer was on both sides and on the lymph nodes. Had the radiation. Now I have a very bad chest pain constantly and palpitations. The doctor thinks it can be related to my cancer. Had the thyrogen shot and blood test and my t4 is a little high and tsh is 17. Anybody has similar symptoms?

Re: thyroid cancer

What was your tg? Do you have tg antibodies? I assume the tsh is that high on thyrogen and not normally?

What is your tsh normally? Is it suppressed? What is your free t3 and free t4? The symptoms sound like they could be thyroid hormone level related (either you have too much thyroid med or too little) not cancer related.

Re: thyroid cancer

When we are highly suppressed---on a high dose of levothyroxine, many of us have palpitations. I had to be put on a low dose of toprol, which helped a lot.
