I had a total thyroidectomy two years ago and have had several occcasions where I've been taken off synthroid to go "hypo". Now, I'm preparing for another whole body scan as well as I131 treatment and I refuse to be taken off synthroid again! It's horrible, horrible, horrible. I am taking the thyrogen shots this time and will never allow myself to go without my meds. The cancer was the easy part; being hypo for two months was a nonstop nightmare.

Hi. I've had a total thyroidectomy three weeks ago. I will have my first thyrogen shot on Monday. I'm quite nervous about the side effects. I tend to be very sensitive to medication. Did you try thyrogen? How did it go? I truly hope it worked out well for you.<br>Best wishes. <br><br>
