Scar - 6 weeks post thyroidectomy


  1. Also, I am so concerned about getting regulated properly with Synthroid. I am sure you read all the horror stories concerning that. How are you with the Synthroid and how do you feel with it?

  2. I was really worried about becoming regulated with the Synthroid as well. I was worried that the dose would be too high or too low or that it just wouldn't work. I know that everyone's experience is different but I am doing really well. I was tired after surgery but by about 2 months or so I felt great. I don't remember feeling so good. At that point I had blood tests and my thryoid level was slightly high and so now I am on a slightly lower dose of Synthroid and I still feel great. I still need to have my blood tests repeated to be sure that this is the right dose, but at this point I feel better than I did prior to surgery. I was worried that I would need to use a T3 only supplement but at this point I am happy with the Synthroid.
