ShinningStarr fights hypothyroid & thyroid cancer

I have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer and have had two thyroid surgeries. I am determined to NOT gain weight, and to loose some extra pounds. Is this possible? I am going to try with the help of my Spark Friends.

1/1/2011- I have added the 27 pounds I have gained since my surgery in June 2010 to my weight scale so I can share my progress. OK, here we go.

Relying on medication for our energy and general well-being really stinks. And it's so much more complicated than you would think. I'm probably going to have to go in for a draw in the next couple of days. I've lost some weight, and now I'm having trouble falling asleep, having heart palpitations, and feeling generally anxious. My hands have been trembling a little bit too. I think they're going to have to drop my dose.

I hope they get this whole thing figured out. I know they always told me that medications would take such-and-such time to work in or out of my system, but every body is different. Hang in there!!!

Thanks Forevertwilight. I am still feeling overwhelmed. I don't seem to be snapping back as well as I thought I might. I am going to have my blood drawn after six weeks since this change in taking my meds and see if the timing thing is really working. I had hoped that this fog would lift and I would feel more energy. I am holding on each day and praying for a day with energy and clarity.

I am still getting lots of exercise, but then I collapse the rest of the day. I am not sure how much that helps. At least I feel like I am doing something.

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Just wondering how you're doing after all that drug-interaction stuff got straightened out. Are you feeling any better yet?
I hope you're having a great weekend!
