Hi! I see you are in my friend's and joined the Weight loss community. I also notice you got the weight tracker set up and i think it is excellent! The only thing you may want to do is add the mood tracker as it can help your relationship with food.
Let me know how you get on and am so thrilled to have you here!

Just wanted to say thanks for leaving me a note...that was really sweet. I went back and read your post about your ER trip too. I can see that you and do feel a lot alike...except you don't have a thyroid anymore, wink...wink. Glad to hear that all went well with the cardiologist. That is a relief right?
When I went to the ER today, they did an EKG and it was noraml. They ran all the standard bloodwork, normal. Chest Catscan, normal. So, all the bad stuff (he mentioned a blood clot in my lungs) was ruled out. He agrees with me that my problems are thyroid related. TSH was 2.55 today and he did the T3 and T4 but I don't think they were Frees. With my Hashi's, my level (from what I read on the board) is supposed to be between .5 and 1.0. Maybe that's why I feel so terrible. Thank you! KIT

Congratulations! See?  Your "heart" is in the right place, and it's normal!  We all worry needlessly - it's the nature of all health problems!!  I'm so glad you're relieved, Sweetie!!!  Feel good :)

Thank you for offering to be my friend! I am getting along okay, I suppose. My depression still hasn't cleared but that has been something I have struggled with for quiet a few years now. I appreciate having this forum and some friends to talk with in this matter. I do hope this finds you well!

I am better.  The dr finally put me on meds and I think it is helping with the difficulty swallowing and other symptoms.

Got blood work results and now it looks as though i am on heading towards the hypo stage. the doc cut back on PTU so it wouldn't go any further into hypo. still in normal range but was 0.00 last month, and was 4.43 this month. hair has started to come out!! Started back on the treadmill have ran 7 out of the last 11 days. but no weight loss, hopefully some inches will come off, am sticking to it!!  Have started back at work in the office, i have been working at home for the past 7 years (so i could be home for my son and cart him wherever and whenever he had to go places). now he is almost 17 and driving. so they said i had no more excuses. only have to do 7 hours a day and go in really early so i can still make it to his after school activities. Hope you are doing better. keep in touch.

Just a quick note to say hi, and OMG, I'm totally scared.  This is literally my first pill.  People talk about it tasting awful.  Did it taste awful to you?  It's been 1/2 hour, and I don't feel a thing yet...  HELP!!!!

Thank you for your kind and caring note regarding my surgery.  It meant so much that you took the time to write and to know you cared.  Made going into surgery so much easier and I truly thank you for your compassion.  (((Hugggss))) Ranae

The bond between parent and child is a mysterious thing. We grow up and leave home and the parents are just there in the background. It's too easy to take them for granted until they're gone. I'm so thankful that I had those last few weeks to really show my Dad how precious he is to me.

The weather here in southern California has been great this week-end, and there's more to come this week.  Highs have been in the upper 90's with no humidity.  This is what I love!

Good luck with the doctor tomorrow.  Be sure to let me know how things go.  Good luck with those calcium levels!

Take care,

Deb

Hi Lilypad300,

I had my thyroid out a few days before you. I am also 35, married with no kids. I hope to try again in a few months.  I am happy so far with the surgery. I didn't have calcium issues but was allergic to the glue they used to close the cut.  I had grave's disease for 2 years, became allergic to the meds and went into remission but my antibodies were still high.  My doctors thought it best to finally come out and I agreed. So far so good.  Take care.

No, I have no fear of the RAI, and that is what the doctor is suggesting. My FT3 and FT4 are normal since being on PTU (last check was end of July) and my TSH was still 0.00. doc says that is the last to rise. i have another blood test end of Sept and mid-October. then back to see doc, my neighbor had the RAI and she had gained weight with graves but after RAI she dropped a ton. weird. then of course after going hypo she gained some back but not all of it. I could deal with that. any weight loss at this point would make me happy. last week lost 3 pounds so excited, the other day got on scale. back on, and today added another. can you see depressed!!!! why did you choose TT??

OMG, I just read your response to Shari re:PTU. You sound like me. I just talked to Stella5349 about the weight gain this morning. same thing happened to her. Please tell me that it came off after your TT. I will either be having that or ablation when mine levels off, or are you still trying level from turning hypo after TT. Thanks GW (Kim)
