I do have it. It sucks; you’re lucky :)” —I still wouldn’t consider myself lucky. Even though I don’t have Hashimoto’s, I have most of the symptoms (which is why I was certain I had it). But really, all thyroid disease sucks. I don’t really feel like one is worse than the other or better. You always feel terrible no matter what you do. But one of the worst issues with it is other people’s reaction to it. A lot of people in my life just dont understand it, minus the ones that have it. Most of them are like: “Oh, you’re tired all the time? Maybe you should sleep more” or “Maybe you dont sleep enough” or my favorite “You’re tired? I’m tired all day too, but I don’t whine about it…”. Or when I mention I can’t lose weight they say “you obviously don’t work out enough” or “you need to eat better”. Pretty much every single symptom I have is my own fault somehow. I sometimes find trying to explain myself harder than my actual symptoms :(
Sorry to hear about your continued thyroid issues. :( This might be old territory, but have your docs looked into Hashimoto’s Disease? I was just reading about it the other day.. A number of patients were saying it can cause TSH levels to fluctuate widely” —We’ve looked into hashimoto’s, I dont have it. I just think at this point that my thyroid is failing
Well, finally after 3 years of struggling with it, it seems my doctors are finally going to remove my thyroid.
I went in today after getting another ultrasound done last week and they informed me that my nodule/thyroid had grown significantly. It was 25x19x26mm and it is now 29x17x33mm. And, with 4 mm growth in any direction they want to do another FNA, I just so happened to grow 4mm on one side and then 6mm on the other. So, I have to go do another FNA (which i am not happy about) Either way, this growth didn’t surprise me as I have been feeling like I got punched int he throat for a month or so now.
I also didn’t mention it here but my last blood result (4 weeks ago, they asked to do them again today) was very abnormal. They doubled my medication the last time I was in from 25mcg to 50mcg. Typically, when you raise medication then that person’s TSH number will go down. Well, mine went from a 2.7 to a 4; the exact total opposite of what it’s supposed to do. They then tried raising my medication to 75mcg, so we’ll see next week when i get my blood results back if that had any effect.
Either way, today was the first day my doctor actually said: “Let look into getting this taken out.” Which I hope means that she is pushing to have it removed. Regardless, I still have to go get that stupid FNA done and talk to a endocrinologist again. I know that my doctor is suggesting removal to the endocrinologist. Hopefully she will agree with my doc and pass to my insurance their recommendation to have it removed. *crosses fingers* I am not religious, but if you are, I would sure appreciate any prayers to any Gods you might believe in! Or even just “let’s get her thyroid removed” vibes my way! lol!
People always avoid surgery when possible but I honestly feel like this is the best and last option for me. It should never take 3 years to regulate a thyroid. A thyroid should never fluctuate results as much as mine does. It’s nodule should also start shrinking when I am medicated not grow. And a thyroid should never react the exact opposite to medication like mine does. (also, on that note, not taking medication has also proven to garner bad results for me) Outside of that, with this damn nodule in my thyroid I am required to get an ultrasound every 6 months for as long as I have it. (or until it shrinks significantly) Then, as today showed, if it grows a certain amount then I have to get a FNA as a follow up. I have done two ultrasounds and two FNAs in the past year. I really, really do not want to do this for years to come. Especially since FNAs cost me $200 out of pocket (they are actually $1200 but my insurance covers the rest, thank god for that or I wouldn’t even be able to do them). So, I would much rather pay a few grand out of pocket now, get the surgery and then not have to worry about checking on it ever again. I’ll just take the appropriate amount of medication and then come in once a year like everyone else. Not once every 4-6 weeks like I have done for 3 years. :/
On another note, my buddy used to work for a compounding pharmacy some 4-5 years ago and swears up and down that they might be able to help me find better medication. (Although, I am not sure what is out there besides Levothyroxine and Synthroid? I know the Armour stuff is around but is there anything else?) She said that they would constantly get women in like myself who couldn’t regulate and would be able to help them. I’m going to need good medication regardless if my thyroid comes out or not so I am totally down to try anything. Still though, if the opportunity arises to have it removed and covered by insurance, you can bet your ass I am doing it.
