Well, after 2 clean scans I was feeling better mentally but dragging with low energy and low mood. That's the wierd part about having thyca for me......the cancer itself is sometimes more curable but it affects a lot of other stuff and it seems to be an on-going health issue. My tsh is still <.02 with 3 dose changes over the last 8 months. It's not budging. I assumed that is why I was so tired.
My family dr. offered to do a testosterone test and it came back really low. I knew a lot of the women on this board had hormone issues after thyca but I never thought to have mine checked. I'm not sure of the link but it's interesting that endocrinologists dose testosterone. I just started on replacement this week and I really hope it is the solution to my low energy.
Thought I would share for the guys out there to have it checked if you are low on energy.
Some days I throw a pitty party for myself and wish I could go back to my healthy, doctor free life prior to thyca but then realize that life is still pretty awesome for me.
