Great doctor's appointment today! First of all, he started me on T3 which I am happy about plus he started me on a medicine that is suppose to help with my hair loss and the best part of my news is, he is gonna try to help me get surgery to have the extra skin from my weight loss removed!!!!!!


And he said again that I am his "hero" and he even called me charming. I am so happy today :D :D :D

That is a great motivator - HERO!!! Thanks for sharing it with us. :bravo:

You will feel much better when the thyroid Rx kicks in. I was subclinical for years and it made a world of difference in my energy.

Please, please let us know what he does to help with the skin removal surgery.

Im gonna assume you are Hypothyroid did you just find out? If so the thyroid meds will help with the hair loss and your hair will grow back. I have the samething and have been on meds for a year and it has worked wonders with my hair, my energy, etc. Congrats on all the weight you have lost you look GREAT.

Thank you!

I know he said he is starting out by documenting the rashes in the umm folds of skin..disgusting, I know but he says this way it will be medically necessary for removal which will be covered by my insurance.

I was diagnosed 3 months ago. I have been on Levothyroxine since but today he added the T3 so I am hoping for great things :)


Thank you :D :hug:
