I've spoken with my doctor, as of this morning, requesting a refill on my thyroid meds, perhaps at a higher dosage so I can actually function, and so my dosage doesn't need to be adjusted upward so sharply after my thyroid is removed (and, hopefully, so I can heal up a touch faster, since that is also dependent upon metabolism).
She said my blood tests indicate my TSH is "normal" and she doesn't want to up my dosage until after I stabilize after surgery.
I've seen my numbers. Sure, they're in the "normal" range. The TSH is high normal. When I got her to order the full panel, the TSH was high normal, and the T3/T4 was low normal. So, I'm on the scale, but my body's not happy with the hormone levels, and is demanding more.
I want a doctor that is willing to put me in the optimal range--right in the middle.
I want to feel human again, damn it.
