    Re: hello

    Hi hon
    and sorry to hear about the fact you have Hashis. It isn't a pleasant disease is it?
    Tune in regularly and post how you feel, perhaps some blood results with Free T3 and Free T4 included, not forgetting all the possible deficiencies you might want to correct, so see if your doc has tested your ferritin, vit D, folate and B12 levels too.
    take care hon
    luv Dawnx

    Re: hello

    Thank you for replying, I did put a post on the hypo board.
    I really need advice as I have just been left to carry on.
    Had lobectomy for a multinodular goiter in nov 08 had a very dominant nodule which had to be removed to check for malignancy, this turned out to be a follicular adenoma.
    When I went back for my follow up appt at 8 weeks I learnt I also had hashis, do have some symptoms but not doing too badly although I do have days when I'm sure a 90 yr old has more energy!!
    TSH at 4 wks was 4.4, do I push for treatment (medication) as I am NOT on any at present or do I wait like the surgeon tells me to for my yearly bloods which will be the end of this year ?

    Any advice will be really appreciated

    Re: hello

    Hi claire, If I felt bad, I would definetely push for treatment, you will be told that your Thyroid is 'borderline' and its probably not your THYROID, but Depression or something along those lines! This is complete rubbish!!

    I presume you will be started on treatment, so I dont see why not now!! The longer you leave it the higher chance of further problems like Adrenal fatigue etc!! Unfortuantly we thyroid sufferers need to fight hard for correct treatment

    Keep us updated thumbup

    Re: hello

    HI Claire
    I agree with Ric, if you are symptomatic push for treatment. It means your body is crying out for something it needs. Don't ignore it.
    lotsa luv
