I was told three months ago I'm borderline hypothyroidism. They give me levothyroxine to take, 75mcg I think. I don't want to take this the rest of my life. It isn't helping me at all with my weight gain and the knot in my neck is still there so I see it Kind of pointless.
I also heard that takin this medicine for a long time causes breast cancer. CANCER is my biggest fear so I don't want to take it at all.
So my main question is, if I don't take the medicine will it put my life at risk? Or will I be okay an just get fat? I actually go to another dr in a few weeks for a second opinion but until then...
