When I saw your post, I thought to myself-- gee did I write that? So, YES, very similar story to me-- had my RNY back in 2000, lost 120 pounds--developed a thyroid goiter (Hyper) over the past few years, had thyroid cancer, thyroid removed last year- did not have to have chemo or radiation, taking Synthroid--up and down with my levels, BUT, I have gained about 80 pounds back--I would love to kick up the exercise but have also developed neuropathy in my feet and unable t o walk very far--feet burning and painful. SO-- I am checking into the new ROSE procedure--without a thyroid I have no metabolism and Synthroid doesn't make a difference as far as I'm concerned, other than feeling tired alot. I feel for you, I really do--just trying to find out which Indiana doc performs this and how can I get insurance to pay for it. Have you checked into the ROSE procedure--its incisionless and made just for us regainers.
