      Because your TSH is too low.  ATA professional guidelines call for TSH lowest limit to be 0.1.

        your TSH is probably too low, depending on your risk for recurrence.  And thyroglobulin should be undetectable (there is no "normal" category for Tg).  If your doctor is lowering your oral thyroid dose, it is to raise your TSH level.  The oral thyroid dose change should not be drastic.  You may want to find out your target TSH.  if it's to .5 simply skipping a single dose or dropping it to 1...

            Sounds like you should be on your chemo protocol, so just make sure you protect your children from your treatment.  This stuff is no joke.  If you're in the US, ask your treating team about support services for your family.  They should have a person to assign to you to get you through this. Also, speak with HR or the company managing your benefits.  You may have short term disability through yo...

              You'll have to pump down (and dispose of the milk appropriately) you can't just stop breastfeeding.  And you can't BF while receiving treatment.  Your child is going to have to adjust, because it's more important to have a healthy mother than it is to continue BF.  Your daughter will have to adjust to new sleep arangments.  And she will.  It may not be easy, but it has to be done. You'll ha...

                Go home. Someone will have to care for your kids for a week.  You simply need to maintain distance of about 6 feet.  Do not share utensils.  Do not sleep with anyone else in the bed. You're not going to contaminate anyone if you keep your body fluids (sweat, saliva, etc.) to yourself. Good luck!

                    You should speak with your doctor about this. I think everyone active on this board has already answered this question to you on multiple posts.  Not trying to be harsh.  You just keep asking the same questions over the years. If you don't have thyroid cancer then this discussion board is not going to be useful for you.  We're not about thyroid nodules or thyroid diseases outside of thyroid cancer. ...

                      Of course you can still work.   Why would you think you could not.
