Thyroid removal is fairly serious mate, it basically controls usage of energy, I remember when mine had some funny tsh readings, check this link as it may explain why you feel rundown as such chap, they do need to do some tests to check some things, cant recall what they were, maybe T3, T4 & TRH/TSH levels, sub39h on here is a doctor, maybe he can advise.

TBH chap, this past years flu has been a real ******* to shift, some really funny bugs around last year & even now, that just will not go away, 3rd month I'm in & any cold air breathed in culminates in stupid coughing & headaches because coughing so much, before this I was slumped in bed for days at a time cause felt so tired 24/7, sweating like a dog, just feeling *****, feel better now but still drained.

The stress and depression of rising fuel, food, insurance and tax costs does'nt help either.

Im sick to the back teeth of being screwed by this government!

I wish everyone would wake up & see its not this goverment that created the issues we have now, it was the previous & the new goverment are having to alienate everyone to get us back on some form of even keel as such, years of spending money we dont have has caused the issues we have now & yes WE are responsible for allot of this aswell as it seems WE cant count at the end of every month, its simple we get paid X & we can spend Y, but allot of people have actually spent Z leaving a massive debt trail behind them & going forward.

Anyway back on the thread point, anyone actually tried coding there **** with VCDS..............................

feeling better recently tbh, theyve put me up to 175mg of thyroxine a day now.
think thats all it is tbh. bit of guess work from testing my blood.....
i had medulary thyroid cancer, had two ops. one to remove the right side (lump) and the left a few months later.
tho my calcatonin levels in my blood are untraceable as of my last blood test (november), aparently thats really good, so they say (and so ive read.).

are you being managed by a GP or a surgeon? GPs can sometimes be a little cautious with the thyroxine which would explain your symptoms - not enough thyroid hormone will make you feel lethargic and run down.

anyhow glad to hear that it's being sorted, and as you rightly say low calcitonin is a good thing :icon_thumright:

i sent you a PM just in case you did need any advice.

I'm also fed up of feeling ill all the time. Had terrible cough and chest infection in October which knocked me for 6 for a couple of weeks then was in bed for 2 weeks all over Xmas with swine flu. NEVER felt so ill in my life, was frightening at times as the asthma was scary! Had flu vaccine now so lets hope im ok til the summer!!!

Shame all this cold weather doesnt kill all these bugs!

Up the owls!
Just about got over the cough and cold I picked up before new year grrrr

I have to feel sorry for all you chaps and chap-esses. Every year, i feel more and more lucky, as I get at most, 2 minor colds a year which give me a bit of the sniffles for a day or so and pretty much no other symptoms. I have not had a day off sick since I was in primary school! I put it down to being a teetotal, non-smoking, sweet munching, gym addict with no kids.

Amazingly for the first time that I can recall, I was home for Christmas with all my family, and not one person in the house was ill at any point over the entire Xmas and New Year period, except for a few nahgovers! Weird...

Cheers,

Well, despite dealing with a high amount if customers face to face, I managed to stay clear of any illness over the Xmas/new year period... until this morning. Got me a sore throat, I'm now croaking. Nothing major though, should clear up pretty quick!

Quite surprised myself to be honest, with my rather unhealthy lifestyle! lol

Urm thats an interesting post, I've had fairly bad stomach problems for many years & now I have bad joints aswell along with tiredness most of the time, of which some of these symptoms are associated with crohns, problem is internet diagnosis is stupid although informative, but seeing a consultant is like talking to a mirror as in you feel like your talking to yourself & nobody is actually listening, they dont even look at you half the time when talking with you about your problems & to actually get them to listen to you, given you're the one with issues is a rarity.

I have a great consultant who has followed me from being private through to NHS. If they one you have is crap talk to your GP and get a better one.

Nope, not him. I had my op in Canada while I was there and been in the care of someone very helpful ever since I got back.

some surgeons are twats - simple fact. when (if) i make it to being a surgeon i really REALLY hope it doesn't rub off on me but monkey see, monkey do. ah well at least the new generation of surgeons are wkd. all the ones i used to work for were nothing short of an amazing bunch of ppl

just find another consultant mate. doctors are rarely anything special, if one is rubbish go to a better one

must be a "freshers' flu" type thing mate - we're all diseased, but when you live in one place long enough you've already had what everyone else has had. when you move you get the diseases everyone else has had but you haven't.

Make the most of your health and do all you can to get better by giving yourself time to recover. You only have one body, although like cars it can be modded.

The one thing for certain is that as you age, recovery takes longer, if ever.

Definitely make the most of what you've got for how ever long it lasts each day as banoffee says.
