Question: Trouble With Thyroid and Levels

 ciera111111 - Mon Oct 17, 2005 9:20 pm

I am a 38 yeard old female with 4 children. I had surgery and radiation due to a cancerous thyroid gland that was fully removed. I was put on thyroid replacement afterwards 1.75 of Synthroid. I am told all my levels are fine why then am I now growing thick hair on my stomach / uterous area? And on my face as well? The hair on my head is getting very thin and brittle and is very thin. I am not losing wieght and am gaining it. I have been trying to have a child and my partner already has had 3 children and I have 4. I have not been able to get pregnant for over a year now. I am now infertal for some reason. I still have regular peiods each month but they are very heavy and only last for a few days. I am very fatigued as well. Can someone please explain to me what is going on with my body?? :(

I am sorry, I forgot to mention that I have severe acne now too which I never had before, not even as a teenager.
