Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


hi!
i was in the same boat as you.
the dr tried to make me stop nursing but i didn't want to so i had a fine needle biopsy and an ultrasound done.
they came out ok and my thyroid levels were normal range.
i was put on a small dose of synthroid back then to see if it would shrink it.
i never did have the radioactive Iodine uptake scan done.
it's been 7 years now so i guess i'm ok and my throid stays the same size, seems to be shrinking since starting cytomel though. it's hard to tell.
i would just do the fna and ultrasound and if those come out ok i see no problem waiting a few months on the other tests..
