I am a mess of problems. 2 yrs ago I had a botched lyproscopic gallblatter removal which lead to the discovery of graves disease. My endocronolgist has pretty much left me in the wind and using me as a guinea pig on thyroid meds. They over radiated my thyroid so now its beyond under working. Levathroxin 175mg is doing nothing and I just keep packing on pounds (60lbs so far and almost all over night). I am also extremely tired all the time, I can literally sleep 16hrs and still be exhausted. Working out is very difficult do to my botch surgery (it has left scar tissue attached to upper abdominal wall, liver and an artery. Which no one will fix till I drop pounds).
Can anyone give me some advice or help. please and thank you.View Thread
