High TSH

Dear Friends,
I had my thyroid removed in the last few days of November 07. For some reason I went hyper right after the surgery(TSH 0.05). My surgeon told me to stop taking my synthroid and do the bloodwork in 3 weeks. And so I did , but now my TSH is 11.68. I feel very tired and have low energy. Can TSH this high be in any way dangerous to my health? I started taking my regular dosage of synthroid back and waiting for the doctor call today. I only spoke to the nurseabout my results last night. Thanks

Re: High TSH

Many people have a high TSH who aren't properly treated and have thyroid problems. It isn't good for you to not treat it of course. And people are effected differently by a given TSH level. I would be extremely concerned if my doctor told me not to take any thyroid medicine if I didn't even have a thyroid. If a person is severly low on thyroid hormones they can go into a coma.

Re: High TSH

That's a difficult question to answer. But since you had surgery Nov 07 & month or so later discovered the high TSH, I would think the chances would be limited.

After my one lobe was removed, it was 3.5 months before I got on Thy medicine. My TSH reached 7.69. That was 2+ years ago. To date, I don't know if it has given me any ill health effects
