It has now been 5 weeks since my surgery and 2 weeks since I started the synthroid. I think that I am doing quite well. I am keeping busy and trying to stay active, although my motivation isn't quite as high as it was pre-op and immediately post-op.
The only things that I have noted to be different are the following: I am finding that I feel a little cranky, especially in the morning. (I will allow that those around me may argue about the "little" part :) ) I also used to be a night owl. I could stay up all night (although I would have difficulty getting up in the morning) but now I am finding that by 9pm I am done for the day. I don't have any energy left for anything else and I am ready to go to sleep. It has actually made me more organized and I am on a much more stringent routine than I have ever been before. I don't think that it's necessarily a bad thing, just different.
By my calculations, I should be close to the lowest thyroid level before my body begins to adjust to the synthroid so I am hoping that things will only get better from here :)
