    Question for the ladies who've had a TT

    This is embarrassing, but I was wondering if anyone had any problems with sex drive after having a TT? I had my TT back in May, and have been on .1 mg of synthroid once a day for about a little over a month (before I was waiting to go through my RAI treatment). I just have absolutely no desire to have sex, and I'm wondering if that's at all common after a TT and being on new meds, etc. It's so silly to be worried about it considering that I recently underwent surgery to remove a cancerous nodule, but it's frustrating! And not that my live-in boyfriend is at all pressuring me in any sort of way, but I feel bad for him, too, because he was so good to me throughout this whole thing. It's frustrating for both of us.

    I's appreciate any stories from people who've been in similar situations

    It could be that your dose is a bit low for you (.1 doesn't sound very high for a thyroid cancer patient. but everyone is different.)

    When you are regulated for a while on the right dose, you should feel okay, it took me quite a few months to get there---my RAI was in March, and I started to feel right in August.

    Is your TSH being kept supressed to prevent a recurrence? It might just be a matter of time....
