Hello, I'm having some health issues after having half my thyroid removed in February. GP says I'm fine - I disagree.

Symptoms: exhaustion, constipation and bloating, muscle cramps, dizziness, breathlessness, fatigue, sleep problems, low mood, irritability.

Any thoughts on my blood tests?

6.25 is a high TSH. Out of range. 10 is supposed to be the magic number for instigating thyroxine with autoimmune hypothyroidism; but I'm not sure what the protocol is for someone who has had a hemithyroidectomy.
Are you still under Endocrine after your ? Is your GP going to contact/refer you back if not?
Always make sure you have your TFT bloods first thing in the morning for a true TSH reading. It drops down during the day and then climbs back up early hours AM.
