Yes. I don't know much about the removal of thyroid, etc., but check out these links:

Mary Shomon's site is a good place to start--link is in this folder.

What I do know is that when TSH is tested, docs rely on a "normal" range of between about .5 and 5.5, but that many of us don't feel ok unless our TSH is at the lower end of this.

My depression was horrible, and my fatigue, edema, fogginess, as well, when my TSH was around 3.6 and even 2.8. Now, my endo has me on higher doses of cytomel and synthroid, and my TSH is suppressed, and I finally have gotten better.

Another thing is that you may need T3 in addition to the T4 (Synthroid).
