Papillary carcinoma with lymph node metastasis

From: JanelleMMLT - 39 weeks 8 hours ago

I was diagnosed and had surgery for thyroid cancer that spread to my lymph node on one side. That was 17 years ago. My doctor monitors my blood work and tries to maintain my T level slightly below normal levels. It was difficult because at .175 I was to high and at .200 I was too low and experienced anxiety, depression, appetite loss, etc. so I’m now taking .175 and .200 rotating everyday. Recently I’ve experienced sweats, dizziness, shortness of breath and muscle weakness. My T levels are where they need to be but I’d like to know if fluctuations can cause heart damage. I had CAT scan w contrast of heart and lungs which was clear. Should I see a cardiologist or have stress test. I’m 58 years old now.
