It is weird, but I know that sometimes while our bodies are trying to figure things out, the numbers don't always make sense. After my thyroidectomy, my Free t4 was in the upper range of normal and my Total T3 was midrange normal, yet my TSH was hypo- it didn't make sense at all. My Synthroid was upped and 2 weeks later, everything leveled out to normal. I think when our bodies go through a major change- even if it's just adding a medication to our daily life, it takes some time for adjusting. When my medicine was upped my free T4 actually dropped a little even though the dose was increased- doesn't make sense exactly, but I guess the body needs time to get adjusted to whatever we do to it. Maybe get another set of labs in a month or 2 and see if things have evened out. I wouldn't worry too much right now.

Diagnosed with Graves Disease after my 4th baby- March 2012
Started on 5 mg. of methimazole daily for 7 weeks
Euthyroid at the end of those 7 weeks, but had to stop methimazole as liver enzymes were 8 times normal range.
Total Thyroidectomy- 6/15/12
Started Synthroid (brand name) 100 mcg. 2nd day after surgery for 6 weeks (TSH: 6.35 & free T4 in upper range and T3 just under mid- range).
Upped Synthroid to 112 mcg. 7/27/12
Euthyroid as of 8/10/12 on 112 mcg. Synthroid (TSH .79 and free T4 in upper range).
