I have to get my thyroid levels checked every 6 weeks after I change doses. I got them checked a few weeks ago and endo E-mailed me with the results. TSH = 0.01, Free T4 = 1.57 (The normal is 0.4 to 6 for TSH, and 0.7 to 2.0 for Free T4). It means the thyroid hormone levels are to high. He also said that he thinks I may need another dose of radioactive iodine (which would mean another 6 month wait to TTC). Now this is where things start to not make sense to me. Right after I got the radioactive iodine treatment done I had my levels checked and my thyroid hormone levels were to low. But, now that I'm taking meds it's to high. So what that says to me is that I need a lower dose of the meds (not that the first dose of RAI didn't work). Obviously I'm not a doctor, but, that seems like common sense to me.
I seriously hope he can figure the med situation out soon because this is just one more thing, a major one, that I'm stressing about. He did fax a lower dose prescription to the pharmacy for me, so hopefully that helps. FX, I really don't want another dose of RAI.
I guess the whole point of this is to say that I'm going to be sitting out a few cycles until my levels are stable and in the normal range. I'm trying to stay positive about it even though what I really want to say is "let's just go ahead anyway".
Anyone else have problems getting their levels just perfect for TTC?
