The doctor had me do some routine blood work since I am on Amiodarone. They showed that I am hypothyroid. This has caused me to put on some weight and slowed down my GI system. After going 10 days without any "results" I had to have a colonoscopy. I had to do 2 days of cleansing to get things cleared out. Now I have to take MiraLAX daily. It also showed my liver is not functioning as well as it should. The doctor cut my dose in half and I will have new tests run this week. I see the doctor the first part of February for the results. Hopefully I will get to discontinue the Amiodarone. I am nervous about what that will mean for my heart, but I will be glad to be rid of the side effects.
