After 2 and a half month of total thyroidectomy I

After 2 and a half month of total thyroidectomy I still feel numbness inside and around my neck. Sometimes it goes away, but at times it is intense. I am 180cm tall and weigh about 88 kg, on 100mcg synthroid and 2400 mg of calcium a day. I have post nasal drip and am wondering if the numbness is a cause of a new allergy, or if the numbness is normal and will go away in time.

I am a 59 year old female, post menopausal planning to undergo a total thyroidectomy in late June. Had a needle biopsy a few months ago and one of the nodules showed a Bethesda 2 pathology. I have been advised to remove the thyroid. I have had hypothyroidism for many years with a multinodular thyroid and goiter. Was on Synthroid in the past but have not been on it for a number of years now. In the last few years had some weight gain of 10 to15 lbs. However, I do not want to gain anymore weight and would like to know what is the best way to maintain current weight after this procedure. And, does everyone experience a large weight gain after this procedure? What I have been reading about weight gain post TT is frightening.

I am a Thyroid cancer survivor and have had a total thyroidectomy as well as had RAI treatment. I have been taking 150mg of Synthroid for a few months now but recently have not been feeling well so had my blood work done and it came back with my TSH level at 0.06. I am feeling very anxious, tired and have a constant headache as well as aching joints and trouble concentrating. I am just concerned as to how low is too low?
