Some of you may remember me from before, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last November and underwent two semi-thyroidectomies. Basically they took half out to check it as the biopsy wouldn't work, found out it was cancer and whipped the other half out. I was put on liothyronine in case I needed radioactive iodine and when I didn't, was put onto levothyroxine. That was a disaster, I went severely hypothyroidal and was confined to my bed for weeks with not even the energy to shower at times (I did, but had to flow straight down afterwards) Demanded to go back on liothyronine and at first all was well. Then I started getting symptoms, shortness of breath which is debilitating, depression, anxiety, forgetfulness, vision problems, agonising joint pain so I'm on super-strength painkillers and walk with a stick, faecal impaction leading to rectal prolapse (sorry guys, TMI I know...) and utter exhaustion. I can manage to do my job (my timetable is very light) but I'm a limp rag when I get home and am never up past 9pm. Quality of life is almost nil, due to all the symptoms. I've spent the day at the Rapid Assessment Unit where they diagnosed severe & critical hypothyroidism & tried to get an endocrinologist to see me, my ENT consultant apparently contacted him in August to schedule an appointment which never happened and I've seen my ENT consultant just two weeks ago and explained the issues and he said he'd "prod the guy" but still I've heard nothing. Well done if you've read this far but what can I do? Who can I badger to get to see this endocrinologist? I don't know how much longer I can hold it all together!
