my journey to health

Hi. I've been on and off spark people for years. Last summer I dropped 40 pounds easier then ever before thought I was doing good for once. However after extensive allergy pills and medications for the constant clearing of my throat, i found a lump in my throat. I asked my family doctor for an ultrasound which came back there was something there. One dr said it's thyroid another dr said it's my throat not my thyroid. Finally a surgeon agreed it was thyroid and did a biopsy. the biopsy came back ...
Hi. I've been on and off spark people for years. Last summer I dropped 40 pounds easier then ever before thought I was doing good for once. However after extensive allergy pills and medications for the constant clearing of my throat, i found a lump in my throat. I asked my family doctor for an ultrasound which came back there was something there. One dr said it's thyroid another dr said it's my throat not my thyroid. Finally a surgeon agreed it was thyroid and did a biopsy. the biopsy came back non cancer...I was thrilled. We decided since this mass was pushing on my vocal cords that it needed to come out so it wouldn't do more damage. I went in for surgery March 1, 2011 to have this half of my thyroid removed. During surgery the surgeon went out to the waiting room and told my husband it looks strange. We had the option to remove all my thyroid to be safe or just half and test it. My husband made the discussion to take it all out so I wouldn't have to have this surgery redone if it was cancer. After testing it showed that I had a 4 cm mass and the very center of this mass was 1 cm of two different types of thyroid cancer. I"m so glad my husband and surgeon made the decision to remove it all. I had two scans and one treatment of radioactive iodine, last scan showed I was clean. I'm getting ready to schedule my 6 month post op scan and find the results. I am slowly building energy back up but i'm not back to full strength yet.

i am a working mom with two boys ages 9 and 12. I lost those 40 pounds before I knew about the cancer. I gained 20 back during surgery and treatments. Looking to re-lose that and much much more.
