In brief: You may be

low on thyroid (hypothyroid) now, after the radioactive treatment which likely suppressed your thyroid function maximally.
You gained weight from successful treatment of hyperthyroidism. Keep up your monitoring with your doctor and trust him/her to guide you in your treatment plan. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
