Question post partial thyroidectomy bloodwork results your input PLEASE!

On 3.31.09, I had a partial thyroidectomy, with the removal of a suspicious nodule of 1.4 cm.

The good news is that the biopsy proved to be clear, so I am ready to get back to "normal", whatever that is.

Previously, I have been hypothyroid. I should also mention that I have hashimoto's.

I am currently on 3 gr of armour.

My bloodwork from 5/5/09 ( my first tests since the surgery) is as follows:

TSH - .22 (.35 - 5.5)
T4 - 4.9 (4.5 - 10.9)

FT4 - 0.79 ( .9 - 1.5)
FT3 - 2.1 ( 2.5 - 4.2)

Here are my questions? What should I suggest my Dr do? He is pretty open to my suggestions. Thus, I ask for your imput.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Re: post partial thyroidectomy bloodwork results your input PLEASE!

Its much later after your original post. What did you end up doing? Are you taking anything w/T3?

I had partial thyroidectomy in 2004 - there was a small "incidental" finding of cancer. But I have my remaining section checked via ultrasound every year and no new issues. I do have symptoms of hypo but only T3 indicated this. Curious about what others are finding after their paritial removal
