      My doctor said it is fine for someone with a history of thyroid cancer. I am thinking of going to see an endocrinologist.

      It sounds like you are quite hyperthyroid at <0.008. Not a doctor by any means, But I believe you might not have to be kept that suppressed. I am 21 years out and I'm monitored by an endocrinologist. Yes, definitely seek out an endocrinologist, preferably one with experience treating folks with thyroid cancer. By the way, have you had a bone density test? Being suppressed for all of these years can do a number on your bones leading to osteoporosis or osteopenia.Good luck!

      So interesting. I am scheduled for a bone density scan this week. Hoping for the best. I will look for an endocrinologist with thyroid cancer experience.
