Bloodwork was done when daughter saw surgeon. Office called and told her to take 75mcg Synthroid. She did and thinks her wheezing is worse because if it. Has anyone experienced worsening asthma symptoms from Synthroid?

Granfan - no advice on that, but hoping your dd's asthma will get under control and that she will start feeling better.

My one ds has asthma, so in additional to her regular asthma meds does she have the machine she can use. I know when my ds has gotten bronchitis with the asthma, he really needed to rest and take a couple of the treatments and that helped him alot.

Are they wanting to do a chest x ray etc?

She had a CT scan of her lungs when she was in hospital for asthma/bronchitis. That's when they found the thyroid tumor. At the ER they always tell her she needs that machine at home, but the pulmonologist she saw last week didn't prescribe it. He just ordered a repeat of the lung tests she already had at the hospital. Supposed to get them done Monday. Thanks for your concern and so sorry your son has asthma, too. I hope you are having a good day today.

Having the nebulizer at home is a good thing if you get into trouble. But using a nebulizer on a routine basis is NOT the way to treat asthma. Hopefully your daughter's pulmonologist has her on a daily asthma prevention drug.

As for her increased symptoms on thyroid medication. First, as you know, that could be just some sort of weird coincidence. Depending on where you live, the pollen counts are OFF the charts in many places. This is never good news for asthmatics.

Secondly, you say that she has been prescribed 75 mcgs of thyroid medication. Are her thyroid numbers indicating that she is deficient in thyroid hormone? If they are not showing low thyroid hormone, taking that much thyroid medication will quickly make her hyper. I could easily see in a person who is sensitive in the lung/broncial area that this could cause a tightening sensation or even bronchial spasms. Hyperthyroidism affects EVERY single part of your body and revs it up.

Hope everyone is doing okay

I finally saw the endo today after six weeks of waiting. I am scheduled to get a fna biopsy on Thursday at 4 pm on the largest nodule. He said he's not worried about the other two. I'm a little nervous about the biopsy but I am so glad they had a spot for me this week. I'm ready to get this over with so I know what I am dealing with. Anything I should listen for or ask during the biopsy so I can come back here and report instead of waiting for the results I hope the don't take forever to give me the results. Does the biopsy hurt?

The FNA did not hurt at all; they put lots of lidocaine on it and it would not have been a big deal at all for most people. I personally had a weird reaction but not likely you will find it to be a big deal at all. My surgeon called with the results the next day, but the person doing the procedure told me later she had known right away she was looking at cancer.

As Micayla said, it really doesnt hurt too much. I had one for the cancer and then I just had one last month for the swollen lymph node in my neck.

They might have you put an ice pack on it and take something like tylenol etc.

Just stay still and turn your head to the L or R.

My lst one was worse because he called it "shaking it up", because he wasnt getting enough cells in the needle.

I dont think that is the normal thing, just with me, anything that can goe wrong, does go wrong. Doctors love me

Wishing you all the best. I think the hardest part is waiting for the results.

Hang in there!

The last blood test did show low hormone and the 75 mcg may have been to prepare for sudden cut off of all production (surgery to remove rest of thyroid and some lymph nodes is tomorrow). Yes, she has been a little hyper and not sleeping much. She had the lung tests Monday and also found out her heart is enlarged probably from all the stress her body has been
going through. Pray all goes well and thank you so much for your concern.

Prayers for your dd tomm. Praying the surgery goes well and she has a good recovery. Wishing her all the best.

She is so blessed to have you there for her. I wish my mom was alive with all I had to go through. I could have used some mom hugs for sure, but my dh was the best.

Granfan-Hope everything went well

I finally had the biopsy yesterday. I think the Lidocane shot and the tech. holding the u/s thing on my neck was the most painful part. It was no walk in the park but I had made it out to be so much worse in my head than it actualy was. They took five samples and I'm guessing the cells were coming out easily because he was never on any section for too long and didn't have to pump around much in there at all. You can see my nodule from the outside and it was really easy to get to they said. I was so scared I was going to move or swallow while the needle was in there! I felt weird after and my neck was sore. It hurt a little to swallow. Still a little soreness today but not as bad as yesterday. Now I wait for a week for the results, oh joy.

Glad to hear it.

The pain goes away pretty quickly with thyroid surgery. I remember my surgeon tellling me that the day off and after surgery my pain would be about a 10 and then very rapidly, like the next day, I would be down to a 2. He was right. I think a used Tylenol for a day and that was it.

It's a good thing my nurse MIL was here to tell us to lay off the pain pills - I was terrified of pain and only needed them for a day or two. I would have taken them for the ten days, or whatever they gave me, and DH would have gladly fed them to me!

Glad to see that the surgery and biopsy went well. I know waiting is awful.
