If you had a "hot": Nodule, your TSH would be low not high and your thyroid uptake would probably be elevated as well, the so-called nodule may be the only area of your thyroid that is functioning appropriately. Depending upon other factors and other lab, you may have had recent thyroiditis or may even need thyroid replacement. Check w/your doctor and/or consider a thyroid specialist.
