After thyroidectomy labs.......whoa! BIG change!!!
Just got the results from first post surgery lab draw. :( Draw was 4 weeks post surgery. No wonder I've felt like heck and gained 14lbs!

This labs were the last before surgery.....(well, April, can't find July's, but similar)

TSH .14 Low (.4-4.0) (my dr likes it to be 0-1)
Free T3 4.95 High (1.8-4.2) (my dr likes it to be 3-6)
Free T4 1.20 (.89-1.76)

TRAB <1 (0-1.5)
AntiTPO 90.6 High (0-35)
GLucose 76 (70-105)
PTH, intact 37.7 (12-65)


After TT on 6/17

TSH 22.8 HIGH (.4-4) (dr likes it at 0-1)
Free T3 2.68 (1.8-4.2) (dr likes it at 3-6)
Free T4 .3 Low (.89-1.76)

TRAB 2.04 HIGH (0-1.5)
Anti TPO 71.8 HIGH (0-35)
Glucose 106 HIGH (70-105)
PTH, intact 93.5 HIGH (11.5-78.4)

I've been hit w/ fatigue, wt. gain, swelling, stiffness in joints and face, libido tanked, carb cravings, dizziness, brain fog....all back in the past month. I was on BHRT 30 mg (1/4 grain) because of very TSH, this was doubled a few days ago. Go back in 6 weeks for labs and probably another 30mg increase he thinks. One nodule of 6 contained cancer.

Oh wow, so sorry you are going through this. I hope you feel better soon and they get your meds adjusted quickly.

is the dr that did the TT the same one who regulated your thyroid prior?

No, my endo did not do the TT. I was referred to a surgeon (specializes on thyroidectomies/parathyroid surgeries) for the actual surgery.
