Papillary thyroid cancer: TT on 7/16/2013, RAI (134 mci) 8/13/13. Advised to begin taking 125mcg of Levothyroxine the day after RAI.
I just got home from a check up with my Endocrinologist. He had zero interest in how I'm feeling or doing. He said that the blood work will show if we need to reflect my dosage. If the numbers look good, then it must be something else and I should see my GP to figure it out.
I am experiencing things now that I didn't have prior to my surgery. Very tired, nails aren't growing (for weeks now), headaches, weight gain, my hair is falling out by the handful, freezing cold most of the time (even when it's 80 degrees outside). I had nausea and major GI upset for 3 weeks after RAI, which he insists could not possible be caused by the RAI. Again, he said there must be something else going on and I should talk to my GP.
I'm so frustrated, and left my appointment in tears. But, I've spoken with a few other people I know that have thyroid issues, and they say their Endo's are the same way with them.
Is this typical, or should I start trying to find another doctor?
