    A little yay!

    I was in to see pcp & she had blood drawn. The blood test results were apparently visible to my endocrinologist because he sent me a letter. Anyway, I had radioactive iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism & the risk was that they would kill off my thyroid & I would end up with hypothyroidism. My prior test showed levels were low & he wanted to start me on thyroid pills. Since I felt good I asked if we could wait & see what happened. Well, numbers were normal for T3, T4, & TSH! Yay, no drugs for that little wrinkle!

    Maybe my luck is improving!

      That's great news because it's been 2 years since I had my thyroid removed and I can't get the dosage right.

      Congrats. I had that done in the 1990 and ever since then my system has been messed up, they still have to change the dosage on my medicine I have to take for the rest of my life. Hope you have a better outcome then me.
