It would be helpful if you had more info on once the thyroid is removed how the medications that are prescribed work.I have a tsh 15.4 t3 22 t4 0.91 My doctor has not increased the synthroid and or cytomel. Will you please tell me how these numbers would indicate an INCREASE not DECREASE in synthroid and/or cytomel prescription, do you agree? I would like to get a second opinion or share your advise with the DR. Am I correct? Please explain how these 2 medications work when the thyroid is removed. Thanks for the help
