Thyroid issues

Hi, all. I am posting this here because most of the thyroid boards I have visited in the past have gone silent, and I know there are folks here who know thyroid stuff. Feel free to delete if this is not OK.

I have been hypothyroid for years, post-sugical for about 8 years. Everything about my thyroid has been stable for the last five years or so, except for when they recalled my medication a couple of years ago and I had to temporarily switch.

I had my annual blood draw last week and just got the results. Free T4 was 1.32 (0.93-1.70 range). My TSH, however, was 27.7 (0.27-4.2)! I haven't had a result that high since the first year I was diagnosed.

I don't see my endocrinologist until July 22, but naturally I Googled. I don't recommend that. I have come to the conclusion that I am either completely fine and this was just one of those things, or I am dying. The truth is somewhere in the middle, no doubt.

Any insights? Any questions I should be asking when I see my doctor?

Thanks in advance.
