Lemtrada thyroid problems

Hey, after lemtrada I had some problems with my thyroid so I had radio iodine therapy June 2018. Everything was fine and my tsh has been normal since December 2018. I got pregnant on January 2019 and on the last trimester my eyes started to pop out, after going to my neurologist and an ophthalmologist they said it was an exophtalmos probably related to my thyroid problem but we had to wait until I had the baby and then wait for a while to see if pregnancy had something to do with it, and if it was the case, maybe it would get better. I had a beautiful healthy baby in October, but my eyes are still the same, there is no pain, no blurry vision and the optic nerve is fine, has anyone experienced something similar,?
