Total thyroidectomy 4 mo ago. High TSH & t4, low t3 (liothyronine). Feeling very hypo. Increases in levothyroxine not helping symptoms. Sliding downhill fast! Help!
Thyroid: Something does not sound right. A high TSH with a high T4 is very uncommon. It is possible, but unlikely that your pituitary gland is producing too much TSH. You need to see your thyroid surgeon or your regular doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

I never had high blood pressure before thyroidectomy andits treatment with medicines. My TSH levels were 0.50 last week and yesterday, my blood pressure went to 183/97.What should I do?

Get 2nd opinion: If the lab studies given are correct you should not need any supplemental thyroid therapy. If you have a low TSH it generally means that your thyroid is functioning at a high level. Factors to consider are why you had the thyroid removed, have you been on previous meds and has a T4, T3, (liothyronine) and Free Thyroxine been done. Have you been having any symptoms, if not, seek a second opinion before starting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What should be my TSH level range with a total thyroidectomy for a goiter and pre cancerous cells? Thank you.
Precancerous?: Hi. Please give us the exact surgical pathology report wording. They don't read those as "precancerous". If it is not cancer, the TSH goal is to be normal. If it were cancer, your endocrinologist would have arranged for radioactive iodine therapy followed by some degree of TSH suppression (that goal is a moving target at this time). Good luck. ...Read more
