GP flagged my apparently very high free T4, and thought I was on a crazy high dose of thyroxine, but he doesn't see a lot of people with no thyroid, does he. Yes, I figured my free T4 would be high; I've lost a lot of weight lately. Inevitable. He says, "You must feel like you're on cocaine all the time!" Hmm.

Then he looked at my thyroglobulin, and said, "that seems really low." And I said, well, yeah, that's good, it should be, it's produced by thyroid tissue. "No no, I think it's made in the liver."

Hahaha he looked it up. (On wikipedia.) "Damn, I hate it when patients are right!" LOL

I really do love this guy, he's very funny and supportive and willing to drop everything if I need help, but there reaches a point where you just know more about your own condition than a GP would. He said, "Let's leave it in you endocrinologist's lap!" I don't know whether to slap him for getting involved in specialist-ordered tests or just laugh.

Laugh...AFTER CRYING ALL THE TEARS MADE OF FEAR. O_O

You're not overly dramatic, it's natural to worry about why the doctor calls you to come in "ASAP" related to a test that you know is checking whether your cancer is back! Absolutely, completely understandable.

I'm so glad you're okay. Sorry for the lateness of this reply, but still. ♥
