Hey I was diagnosed with hypo thyroidism back mid 90's, doc put me on synthroid meds. Doc said I would be on the meds rest of my life, but approx 5 yrs later from the diagnose, my Thyroid started working, so far so good. Back to normal. So what I'm saying here is - there always is hope! I was really fatiqued, swelling with fuild looking very bloated. I truly hope it goes well and things calm down for you, get your med regiment down and you should be ok. Good luck!!!
