BYB Sunday

Firstly, I just want to take a quick moment to wish all the Dad's that may surf by here today a very Happy Father's Day!

Secondly I have some good news to share regarding by Grave's disease treatment.

Last week my doctor told me she was concerned about my liver not reacting well to the pills I am on, and that based on the outcome of blood tests I would have to get done I may need to come off of them completely. This would mean the possibility of destroying the thyroid through radiation as a permanent solution, which is something I want to avoid if at all possible.

Well, I had the blood work done, and the liver numbers came down a very wee bit! Not only that, but my thyroid has responded very well to the drug treatment. Yah!

So my doctor's plan is that I stop the pills immediately, which I did on Wednesday, and then restart them on Monday morning 5mg per day. This gives the thyroid and liver a break, and is a much, much lower dosage then the 30mg per day I started off at. If symptoms of hyperthyroidism start up again by my next visit (July 9th) she'll increase the dosage at that time. Fingers crossed that they won't.

For now I've dodged the atomic cocktail as I call the permanent solution..... phew......a blessing indeed!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week ahead!
