I went through this EXACT thing in June.The endocrinologist did have me go ahead and do the radiation just to be on the safe side even though they said they got it all. I am now 6 months in remission. I am sorry you have had to here that terrible word but so thankful they got all yours as well. I am here if you need to chat.

Suck it up and one day you won't have to suck it in!!!



Hebrews 12:11
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Life doesn't have a remote, you have to get up and change it yourself.


If it is not challenging you, then it is not changing you.

All the best for a speedy recovery!

Simply being thankful makes life easier.

I am who I chose to be. Stronger. Leaner. Further. Fierce.

It's about taking my power back.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.

Fabulous news!
With your family's history of thyroid cancer and you hyperthyroid, surgical removal was the right choice in this instance. Not that we are clones of our family members, but we do tend to swim in the same gene pool so that likelihood of cancer being a factor increases if a family member has it.

Papillary thyroid cancer has an excellent cure rate, especially when you've caught it early.

Here's to your sensible choice and future health and happiness...

Oh, that is wonderful news! What a blessing for you! I am grateful that they could get it all and you wil not have to have additional treatment. Hopefully, your hyperthyroidism can now be controlled and you will start the new year feeling better!

I went in not knowing if it was cancer or not. I have had nodules at least five years. They were biopsied one time back then and found benign and then no follow up. Then I turned hyperthyroid a couple of months ago and they could not biopsy them. I am glad I followed my gut and went for the surgery instead of the RAI treatment for the hyperthyroidism. (I also knew there was a family history of thyroid cancer).

I had my thyroidectomy on the 18th. I went yesterday to have my stitches removed and hear the pathology report. He said they did find papillary cancer in my left node. It was 6 mm and encapsulated. He said he got it all. He does not believe I will need RAI treatment for it. He said to discuss with the endocrinologist on Monday when I have my follow up with him. I am thankful he got it all.
