Hi, I am just on Nivo and my thyroid went out the first month on treatment. I take Synthroid everyday and still 7 months later still having trouble getting regulated. Comes with the territory I guess! 🙂
Hi Hukill, oh ya, back when i was on Keytruda (nov 2017 to like june 2018) it destroyed my Thyroid and since then, iv finally got a dose of Livothyroxin that works for me at 250mcg! Every few months id go up and up and til we found what works. Then, when i started Ipi and Nivo it messed up my Cortisol levels and i take 10mg Hydrocortisone..As far as fatigue very little these days, once they took out that 8cm Mel Monster fron my right lower lobe of my lung, my severe body nerve pain went away….good luck with your pains, its a Pros & Cons type thing ya know? So far its more Pros then anything…
TSH and T4 are tested in my blood to see whether my thyroid medication should be adjusted. I would not alter the dose of my thyroid medication without asking my doctor.
