Thanks for helping Sir.
I actually just received some rt3 and other thyroid labs this morning. I'll start with those. Currently taking 90mg of Armour
T4= 4.4 (low) 4.5-12.0
T3= 115 71-180
Tsh= 2.210 .450-4.5
RT3= 8.5(low) 9.2-24.1
I know the tsh is high, should be 1.0. Not sure what the low t4 and RT3 indicate.
10-4 on the probiotic, I'll get some good stuff from the cold section at the health food store. Start now and again after antibiotics.
Sorry if it seems im not sharing important stuff. I made the classic mistake of starting multiple threads. You have helped me with all individually but I know the big picture is impossible when facts and vital information is spread around. I'll update my main post asap to include these things.
Though it has a long recovery time and sounds rather brutal it's actually an ambulatory surgery. Unless they get in and the infection is beyond what they expect. Just barely according to the surgeon. So no pump just lots of stool softener and fiber during the recovery.
I truly appreciate your help and sympathy.
