Thyroid removed suffering memory and other problems!

I had to have my thyroid removed due to an extra large goiter which had grown down into my chest cavity and around the back of my neck, also causing problems with swallowing. When I woke up I was basically lost and it took me a long time to get about half way back to normal. I am still having problem with my brain connecting my thoughts and memory lapses. Headaches to the extreme and body temp control. I am currently taking 150 micrograms of Synthroid once a day.

Please give me some hope as it has been this way for around 3years!!
