Living With Papillary Thyroid Cancer Since '08
I'm Julie. I'm 45. I'm living with Papillary Thyroid Cancer since 08. I've had a complete thyroidectomy, a some parathyroid were removed, 3 I think. I've had RAI Treatments, the first I-131 and then followups, one in '09. I'm coming up soon for another this Fall. I'm on synthroid alternating every other day between 150 and 175. I take 2,000mg B-12, Vitamin D-2,000mg daily. I am also taking vitamin A, C. I have high blood pressure. I have mitral valve prolapse with regurgitation. I've had a complete hysterectomy (year 2000) due to fast growing fibroid tumors. I still have one ovary. I have a Vitamin B12 deficiency. So by the end of the week I've got quite a few vitamins in me~ 14,000mg of B12 and Vitamin D. I still have no energy. I feel lethargic, sleepy and out of it most of the time. I'm not depressed but I am weepy at times because I'm TIRED! When you're tired you feel so many emotions. Why the hell am I still tired? Why the hell has all this happened to me? Why is it happening? Doesn't anyone else ask WHY!?
