Hi everyone,
I am 5 years post op total thyroidectomy after finding thyroid cancer. I am on Synthroid and Liothyronine and my doctor checks my levels every few months and changes them based on my symptoms and levels. Is there any ideas on what I can do to help my exhaustion? I work full time and have a 2 year old son. Its making it difficult to function once I get home from work. Thanks for all you suggestions!!!

Hi. I'm almost 6 months post total thyroidectomy and thyroid cancer. I don't have a solution for you but I'm having the exact same issue with tiredness and it interfering with how I function. All I'm being told is that the medicine gets constantly adjusted. I hope you find some relief. I'm frustrated now. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be 5 years later.

Take a look at my posts about T3 only treatment, taken 6x per day. You might find that it's worth a try. It works so fast that you'll know right away.

I'm male, 58, 220 pounds and I have to take 12.5mcg, 6x per day. While that seems like a pain, it's really not, considering how much better I feel. I just keep a bunch of 'em in a little flat plastic container in my wallet. (it's actually an SD card holder)

It may not work for you. But I believe it's at least worth a try.

I had a similar question. It's not answered, but Golgo13's insight might help you.
