I Had A Total Thyroidectomy 2 Years Ago. This Came After A Long Battle With Doctor After Doctor--not Wanting To Believe I Even Had Thyroid Disease. Once I Finally Found A Doc Who Was Willing To Listen And Do The Proper Tests--i Was Diagnosed With Hashimoto's Disease And Found To Have Several Tumors On The Thyroid. I Have Gone Through Many Years Of Inability To Lose Weight, No Matter How Carefully I Eat Or How Vigorously I Excercise. I Was Told That Once The Thyroid Was Removed--and I Began Taking The Thyroid Hormone Replacement--i Would See A Drastic Change In My Weight. This Has Not Happened. I Feel Like I Eat Even Less Than Prior To The Surgery--and, I Just Keep Gaining Weight. I Think I May Have Cushing Disease--but, Have Not Been Diagnosed. I Have A Thick, Short Neck---my Face Has Rounded And Becomes Red Quite Often--my Skin Is Thin--i Have Noticed Many More Facial Hairs Than Ever Before. I Don't Sleep Well. I Was Diagnosed With Sleep Apnea And Have A Cpac Device--but, I Sleep Even Less With It. Any Ideas?
