So this is me. I had my left thyroid removed on Friday 2/23/18. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism because my left thyroid was making to much of whatever they make and it was growing. It ended up being 6 centimeters long (I didn’t think of asking the dr to take a pic of it- go figure because I take pictures of everything) There will be a biopsy.
For about a year and 1/2 I have been feeling really bad. Always tired and hot and moody. I love being positive but lately it has been a challenge. When my doctor had me complete blood work to see what was going on she told
me my thyroid is outta wack and sent me to a thyroid specialist. He performed numerous tests and scans- he confirmed my hyperthyroidism-but added ‘with weight gain’ (thanks doc) and he thought I might have Graves’ disease. Even after surgery that has not been a diagnosis. So I still don’t know why it grew- but I am hopeful that the surgery will help me not be tired, hot and moody any longer.
Being three days into recovery and I am still tired, hot and moody and I feel like I got my ass handed to me. Sore all over. It’s amazing how tiring texting is (I am on my cell phone), how every move you make makes other part of your body react. Seems like a no brainer- you move something and something else reacts but I really have never experienced it first hand. Every move I make seems to pull on my neck.
Well this is all for meow.
