Test your Free T-4, not just TSH, T-3 and T-4. That is what took my sleepiness away after surgery. Some doctors dont know that. Free T-4 and it has to be read right. High doesn't mean High and Low doesn't mean low when you have had a pituitary tumor. I think only ENDO. doctors know that.

Have your Free T-4 checked. I had the same thing after surgery and that is what it was.

Your Free T-4 is probably causing it. I had the same thing. I had surgery and radiation and could not get out of bed. Most doctors do not check the Free T-4. That is thyroid. Very common with piituitary tumors.
