... months following major illness and most recently thyroidectomy for early Thyroid cancer. My physician is recommending Thyrogen and possible RAI. Could this trigger POTS? With my POTS I have sodium wasting and inability to stay hydrated and intolerance to water without salt i.e. V-8 or chicken broth
yes, any illness can trigger/aggravate POTS. But it's like trying to stop a roller coaster by dragging your foot! If you are young you have a better chance of getting better. I am like you and just got diagnosed with Central Diabetes Insipidus (can't keep water in me, it all goes out, if you know what i mean). IVs don't help, nothing helps. I don't know if there's a pm function on this group but feel free to ask more questions if you need to... all I do is lay in bed so i'm always online! I've had cancer too, and am immune deficient genetically...
