I am truly in a funk right now. Yesterday I got my thryoid results, and some were actually worse than before I started the meds.
My TSH went from a high of 5.4 on April 2 to a low of 0.032 on May 18th - completely from one end of the spectrum to the other.
My thryoid antibodies, which have a range of 0-34 was 227 on Feb 11, today 466
My t 4 went from 10.9 which was normal to 15.4 out of range again
Due to problems with LabCorp we are still waiting for the reverse T3. They are talking perhaps another 7-10 business days before its processed
So when I saw the doctor this morning, obviously things were not great and got worse. Seems that my home scale is 12 pounds in my favor compared to the scale I was initially weighed in at their office. I only lost 11 pounds in 39 days. I know that is a good thing, but between the thryoid and adrenals not functioning like they should, it stressed my body out more. The one good thing is I lost another 2 1/2 inches in my waistline,. Rest of my body stayed the same which means a total inch lost of 15 inches.
I had the poor doctor so stumped as to what to do with me now He is afraid to take me off the thryoid meds, but he is also afraid to leave me on them since it is making some things worse. I am off the HCG until July 1. By then I should have had the epidurals in my back,
I told him the story on how I wanted Starbucks so much and resisted. I even told him I was actually at the counter deciding what I wanted and instead asked for a cup of water, paid for my books and left. I was in tears by now and so was he. He is going to come up with some options next week. I told him I wanted to be down to 200 for the Christmas party this year. His plan was actually better He figured I would be down to 170 by the end of the years with the HCG and a functioning thryoid.
Got lucky and the company is not coming YEAH. but my son's girlfriend is coming up from Atlanta. Have not seen her in a while, so that is a good thing Hubby is still not coming home and has not said when he will. The company though figures they will come up the first weekend in June, my wedding anniversary. I think not on that one.
