    Sue… sorry if I’ve caused confusion…yet another example of my foggy brain. I think you are right. I just remember hearing somewhere that even once a person is stable on meds (from a blood levels, clinical standpoint) that some docs are willing to introduce a mixture of T3 and T4 because some people feel better and the lingering ‘subjective’ symptoms are alleviated.

    Or, I could be totally wrong. Anyone know what I’m trying to say and not saying it the correct way?

    Haha,,, just had a similar confusing conversation with a member of my team…could see her looking at me as if I’ve lost my mind. Damn brain.

    Cheers, Karen

    LOL Sorry to be laughing at your expense, Karen, but I found your mush brain to be quite funny – probably because I can relate so well.

    I get embarrassed and frustrated at work when I am standing in front of 6-7 people, have their full attention, am in the middle of speaking about something fairly intelligent, and then a bunch of jibberish syllables come out of my mouth. It’s not like a stutter, it’s more like a bunch of alien-language comes out of my mouth all of a sudden. Don’t know if it’s a result of the TT but it never happened before. I’m going to chalk it up to the exhaustion our bodies are still dealing with (along with the recovery). That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

    I’m also going to assume that if I went hyper on Levothyroxine that I am converting T4 to T3, until I hear otherwise. Lord knows I have enough to worry about – I don’t need to get phobic about “not converting” again like I was the first few weeks after surgery.
