Went to the doctor for my test results yesterday!! And to both of our amazement it is PERFECT with the dose I'm on now. So we talked more about the hair issue and my nails cracking like crazy. He thinks the hair loss is from the radioactive iodine, he also thinks it could just be the fact my body still isn't fully used to the change in thyroid levels and that it's just still showing symtoms of certain thyroid related things. Also he said this could be a HUGE factor in why I am not losing weight.
He said in 3 months if things aren't fully back to normal and if I am still stuck at the same weight without much a difference we will talk about further testing on other things. He said 3 months because it is when I am due for my next thyroid blood tests.
Even if I am not losing weight I must say I feel a lot better and feel a lot healthier. Yeah I would like to be back to my skinny self but at least I feel better and that's all I can really ask for.
Now still mad about $85 to just get test results. So next time I'm just going to call and be like no I need them and I'm not coming in unless there's been a drastic change unless you want to pay for it. Also to sit in a waiting room for 3 hours with flu ridden kids who's parents didn't tell them to cover their mouths when coughing.
On to other news my legs are so sore!!!! And found out my mom isn't coming to visit. It's upsetting but she can't stand the cold and her allergies are killing her and I don't want them to get worse up here. Also the 12 hour drive haha. She said she will get up the nerve to fly here at least.
Hope everyone has a great day!!!!
