BAH!...back to square 1.
My thyroid follow up results just came back. Not good. Not good at all.
I'm significantly hypothyroid again. For those who care or can interpret it, my TSH is at 32.40
For those of you who don't speak TSH, that number should be below 5 for normal people, and below 3 for TTC, but not below about 0.35. (not that all of you TTCer's aren't normal or anything)
Last blood draw I was at <0.010, and now I'm at 32.40
Perhaps I should get another opinion on this...so I have decided to do just that. But...of course, they can't get me in until 11/29. I tried to pull the Dr. card but it just got me put on a cancellation list not actually moved up. And if they call me the day of, there is a very slim chance that I could actually come in anyway, so the 29th it is!
The ENT I work for placed the bloodwork order for me (or rather his PA did) so the results were delivered directly to me within 24 hours of the testing being done...which is pretty good for Nowhere, NM. (hmmm...I wonder if this would work for beta testing should I ever get my BFP? I guess that the ordering Dr. would like the results first or too, so maybe not)This ENT had interest in endocrinology before deciding on ENT and was able to comment on the results.
He thinks I just need to be more consistent with the time that I take my medicine and make sure that it is on an empty stomach at least a half hour before eating, and recommended that I go back up to 75 micrograms.
Since I already wake up at 6:30 to take my temperature and have been waking up at 5:45 to go to the gym (yay, go me for getting my butt to the gym on a regular basis...or at lease just this week) I guess I could make that 5:45 wake up, take temp, take thyroid meds, go to the gym.
Wait...did I just say wake up, gym, and 5:45 in the same sentence...
Anyway, I guess I could make some changes to try to improve things, maybe H is right, maybe I'm just lazy...about the gym anyway.
