    Everyone is different.  Depends on whether you are male or female, age, etc.  I am 3 years post TT and I remember that it was a few months on and off that I had the pain in my jaw/gland on the right side only. I hate lemon drops, so I ate Jolly Ranchers and drank a lot of water (not more than 7 glasses a day are good for you).  There is such a thing as too much water.  The first year I had off and...

        I read all these posts on here and it scares the heck outta me....I THOUGHT my papillary CA was cured.....and my doctor says it's rarely a killer, but now, after reading all this stuff on here, I'm beginning to panic.  It's been 3 years next month since my surgery and I've been doing well so far...no tiredness, no weight gain, nothing bad...thank God! BUT...am I cured?  Should my doctor do an U/S of the thy...

          I had NO prolem going hypo...never noticed one single change, and most people don't have any lethargy..those that do usually have other health problems involved.  My doctor said a person would have to be off their meds for a year before they noticed a change in their energy. So, don't worry.  I was find. Next year, get the Thyrogen shot if possible. Then you stay on your meds and don't worry aout the potent...

            Everyone's different...depends on how close to the voice box they got.  Sometimes, some people always sound like gravel....there's nothing you can do about it.  I am almost 3 yrs. post op but can't yell at anyone....frustrating...but a small price to pay for good health.  Also, when I try to talk for more than five minutes, I get hoarse and have to quit.  So, you see, it all vaires from person to ...

              I"ve had RAI twice.  The Thyrogen is not available to me now..in fact, no one can get it....so my doc is just going to wait until it is...but if not in the very near future, then I'll have to go hypo I guess. It's not too bad...I really don't notice the difference.  Lucky I guess.  So...it's been 2 years post op for me and I guess I'm doing okay.  Just taking the Synthroid, which is being changed ...

                Hi! I'm gaining weight and I wonder why because I had my thyroid sugery two years ago and have NOT gained any weight, in fact, I lost 8 lbs.  Now, my doctor has had to lower my Synthroid to 112 because he needs to raise my TSH level and since then, I've gained 6 pounds. I'm scared it's not going to stop. How do I lose weight?  I haven't changed my eating habits, so it's not my fault that I gained it, in fa...

                  Hi everyone!  It's been awhile but I have a question.  It's been 2 years since my operation and now the doctor says that the newest treatment after two years (first year showed no thyroid left over and no tissue left anywhere else) is that I only need an Ultrasound of the thyroid...no body scans needed. Mayo Clinic advised it was a waste of money and time for the patient as well as expensive.  So...no...
