After NET surgery I went from having hypothyroidism to hyperthyroidism
Hi! I have had hypothyroidism for many years. Now after my NET surgery on 8-7-23 in which the surgeon removed a large tumor in my small intestine, one of top of it, one in the lymph node of that area, and 10 other lymph nodes, I now have hyperthyroidism. I continue to drop weight, be shaky, feel hyper, dizzy, not focused, etc. and have diarrhea. I thought all the diarrhea and weight loss I’m experiencing was due to my surgery and some bile acid malabsorption (which they believe is a factor). My hormones are going haywire! My doc is adjusting my thyroid meds and I will see a new Endocrinologist in a couple of weeks. My full body PET scan is the first week of November, and follow up with the oncologist is 11-14 to determine treatment options. Has anyone else experienced this type of reaction after NET surgery?
