 I'm neither, but am interested. The topic heading says hypothyroidism and your question says hyperthyroid. Are you asking about both?

I would swear I'm hypo, but the labs say no.

Yes, the are MANY people here who are hypothyroid. Along as you take your medication, and get your labs checked regularly to make sure the dose stays correct, it will not adversely effect your weight loss at all.

 I'm hypothyroid and have RNY.  I'm a little under 3 months out, but I've lost about 50 lbs. and haven't had any complications or problems.

 I have hypothyroidism. I was really worried about this with the RNY but so far so good. I think I was 247 on surgery day? Anyhow I am down to 200 now.  You just need to keep your blood levels checked to make sure your medication is correct. I get my labs drawn next week. And my doc will see if I need a change yet.
