I had thyroid cancer
Not necessarily. I was on .125 dosage and gained weight although my diet didn't change.
I am assuming you had your thyroid removed. If so, there is a process the body had to go through converting synthroid (T4) to T3 then to TSH.
Weight is sometimes based on how the body does this.
Hope this helps
