Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I am newly Dx with Hypo. 3 weeks now, I will start synthroid on tuesday. I have read alot of the posts here to get some idea of what I am in for. My question is, since I see everyone on this wild rollercoaster of meds/blood teats/and no real regularity to this gland, why dont I just have it removed and do the meds anyways? It just seems that the thyroid will work sometimes. Then it will cause conflicts with the meds we take. Making us ride this rollercoaster. So is it silly for me to just ask for removal? Has anyone done it this way? What were your results? Thanks in advance for all your help!!
