Levothyroxine - katiecakes

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Papillary Carcinoma, Thyroid Cancer. Posted on September 7, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

Leaving the hospital on August 6th, I was prescribed Levothyroxine (among other pain meds for recovery) that was going to be my thyroid replacement for life. Because I don't have a thyroid, I lost the area that was the center of hormones. My endocrinologist explained how important it was to take this medicine, and if I ever became pregnant, he is the first person to call so my dose can be increased.
