I am glad to find people out there who have not had their atomic
cocktail or thyroid taken out. I have no real help to offer you
but that I have been revisited too. I had Graves about 3 years too.
I had taken a medicine that does almost the same as PTU. I took it
for a little over a year and after my TSH came back up they took me
off the medicine. Feburary this year I started feeling Graves symptoms
again, I actually had some weight loss and hightend puls – only little
eye involvment. I for my case decided to try Carbimazol again and
started hemeopathic treatment. I am feeling well now, my TSH is very
low but everything else alright. I feel emotionally stable. Now I
am waiting again for the TSH to go back to normal and I hope the
homeopathic treatment will help my body to reach that. I am very
confident that with this supportiv treatment I will get through it
once again – no atomic cocktail and no operation for me.
I guess as long you seem to be doing fine with the PTU and if it would
be necesary for you to take it again, than thats probably how life
goes. I will go through this as often as I have to and as long as
the medicine does not harm my body. I got the feeling from reading
through some of the massages that being hypothroid does not make
people feel good. They might be more healthy (hormone level wise) but
not exactly happier – these are just my feelings.
Hope you are feeling well and things have not gotten worse!
