It Goes Up: Those who have thyroidectomies need to take thyroid hormone replacement, levothyroxine. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) comes from the pituitary and increases when thyroid hormones are below normal. Elevation in TSH often indicates hypothyroidism. Adequate levothyroxine replacement keeps the TSH level normal. ...Read more
Goes up: Tsh increases when you are hypothyroid. If enough thyroid tissue is removed to make you hypothyroid, the TSH should increase. ...Read more
Becomes elevated: After removing the thyroid, thyroid levels become low. This causes the pituitary gland to put out TSH as it is trying to get your thyroid to make more thyroid hormone. Since you have no thyroid, the TSH will go higher and higher unless you take thyroid hormone to maintain a normal level. ...Read more

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
I had my whole thyroid removed for i was diagnosed having follicullar variant of papiilary carcinoma now my reports are clear but my TSH is 0.004?
Great: That's where you want your tsh. Your "normal" levels are different from the normal levels on the lab slip, as you need to be suppressed so that you don't stimulate any thyroid growth. Make sure you're on brand name T4 replacement and your doctor keeps close tabs on your level. Also check your serum thyroglobulin, which can be a thyroid cancer tumor marker and ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
