I have a goitre and some nodules and have been prescribed levothyroxine to stop my thyroid working as a plan to shrink the goitre.

Even though I am at slimming world I have gained 13 lbs since March.

I take 150 daily and I am an amputee - I need to try to keep my weight stable.

I am so tempted to stop taking them but worried that my thyroid may not start working as it should.

I know this can cause weight loss as a side effect but this is not the case with me.

Any help or advice would be appreciated

Thank you
