I see you had your thyroid gland removed 2 weeks ago.

was there papillary or follicular cancer in your thyroid gland?

low TSH levels of 0.280 can be normal in some patients.

but if you had your thyroid gland removed, eventually you will need to take thyroid hormone or synthroid or levothyroxine thyroid supplemental hormones as you don't have a thyroid to make thyroid hormone anymore.

let me know if you have questions.
