  • My husband had medullary thryroid cancer 4 years ago and had his thyroid and 2 ofthe four parathyroids removed. The surgery went well he was a bit husky afterwards but no long term problem. No his diet is the same as always, lots of fruit and veg. He takes T3, T4, and sometimes Calcichew depending on his calcium levels. He sees the specialist regularly, has various scans yearly including PET, CT and MIBG.Good luck don't worry too much find yourself a good surgeon and make sure you ask lots of questions and keep a copy of all your notes - they do get lost quite frequently.

  • these symptoms you are complaining of is similar to the symptoms of hyperthyrodism. Which also it can be due to high levels of synthroid causing similar symptoms. You can see an endocrinologist to help you adjusting your dose.wishing you the best.
