Had a biopsy on my thyroid last week, growth (nodule) was flagged as suspicious because of size. Got the results back and there was no cancer found!!!!

On the flip side, doc gave me the okay to off the thyroid med. It was being used to shrink the growth and is only productive in 3% of cases but not successful on mine. No fun and I could not undertsand for sure until I asked but going off this med causes headaches, nausea, fatigue. I felt lke I was back to square-one all over again. However, nurse said this should pass within a month of being off med.

You must be incredibly relieved. So happy for this result. Are they having you taper off the med? Some meds will have less of a withdrawl when tapered but I don't know if that is the case with the one you are taking.

That is great news. Hopefully you won't feel too bad from stopping the med.

Great news! Glad you are okay!!

(and I have to say I went through this myself with a thyroid nodule in 2008--which has now somehow disappeared!?? and I take no meds and my thyroid functions perfectly normally) I am guessing yours will too!?

Good for you--celebrate today!!

Tapering off the med (take one every other day for a week or so?) may be the better bet.

Ask the doc??

Great news! Waiting for the results of a biopsy is nerve wracking.

Good news that you can stop taking the med, but it's a shame it causes so much trouble as it leaves your system.

Wishing you a speedy rebound! :D

Really good news, AVR. Now you can relax (once you withdraw from your thyroid med :D )

I'm so very happy for you! As someone has stated here . . . you should celebrate!

I also believe you should taper off the meds. I would talk to your doctor about that but it just seems to make sense.

Best of luck to you as you try to do that.

No tampering off. First few days I was fine but day 7 I felt it and I could not figure out what was going on. This was like in the beginning when I got so sick, only able to stand for short amounts of time before I felt like I was going to pass-out kind of like my iron is low (which it is not), very weak (muscles feel like they have half their strength), nausea, fatigue. Walking up the stairs or vaccuuming the floors is a chore. My kidneys started acting up on me which is not uncommon, don't know if there is a link to the meds or not. My knee, wrist and elbow joints are aching again so I am taking it easy righ now. I'll see if this passes....right now trying to hydrate myself, staying away from caffeine and alcohol. I have an appt to see doc the first part of next month and if these symptoms don't pass I'll see if they can run my bloodwork again, perhaps something is low.
