Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

Okay I had a little over half my thyroid removed and was put on synthroid. It's been 5 weeks and I DO NOT feel any better than before all of this was done. I go back to the doc in a little over a week. I think I was expecting a miracle or something and I am somewhat disappointed by the way I feel. Do you think I will have to have my synthroid increased or is it just to soon to feel a difference? I am just so tired all the time. Also is it normal for your scar to itch alot?
Thanks for any info
ps I have also had terrible heartburn since the surgery.
