I just got home today from a long day of taking care of my uncle and my dad tells me that my endo called and told him that my tsh was 80 and he was concerned that it was low and my dads like yeah maybe cos u told her not to take her meds for 6 weeks for that test and hes like i did?

Oh Megan

Bless your wee socks. What a doctor.... totally unreal..... I hope the results at least point out something and that it is all in your favour (that can happen you know)

Re: O M G

I had my doctor "forget" she moved me to 50mg of Synthroid. So when the visit was over I didn't think of checking my script. I went to the pharmacy to fill it and when the pharmacist questioned the dosage I was like no she made a mistake. They wouldn't fill it until I called and double checked.She must of never wrote down she changed it.uuurrrggg So I can feel your pain.

Re: O M G

He called me again this morning to tell me the same thing...that my tsh is 80 and i must be tired. Im like you told me not to take my meds for 6 weeks he said oh you did that scan? im like yes, you are making me nervous forgetting all this...then hes saying with my body weight i need to take 1 1/2 of my 88 mcg until next week and i was like how much do u think i weigh? and he said well on the chart megan and im like well it doesnt seem like ur looking at the chart much so im nervous and he said 111 lbs. lol So bottomline...he wants me to take 1 1/2 88 mcgs til next week because he said with my tsh at 80 he doesnt want the nodule to grow. But I dont understand and I wanted more explanation and he got frustrated and said if i dont understand the phsyiology of it just take 88 and hell tell me next week. ?????? what do i do? mEEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
