A month ago I stoped taking my meds mostly because I couldn't afford to go to the doctor. The doctor refused to see me or refill my prescription cause I didnt have the money to pay at the time. I feel fine don't get cold but do have night sweets. I gained weight while I was talking the meds instead of loosing I drink a lot of coconut water witch I read on a medical web sight was good for it. I don't like taking medicine never have. If possible I don't want to take them. Please tell me what to do from here
Since you had your thyroid removed you NEED to take your thyroid medication. You can get very sick without it! You can actually die without it! It is what contols your metabolism etc. . You have to get over this thing about not wanting to take medication in your life because there is a time you have no choice. Like now! Get over it! Your life depends on it! You should try to find a way to figure out how to get your med instead of stop it! I know I had a thyroidectomy because of thyroid cancer. and am on synthroid for life. I feel great!
Thank you I guess I just need someone else outside my family to slap me in the face to wake me up to the fact I could die. I thought it was just them trying to make me do something they know I don't like as usual. So I will find a different doctor. Thank you again
