Re: Any Papillary cancer people out there?

I had a total thyroidectomy in feb 94 and was diagnosed with papillary cancer. I have had radiation treatments 4 times in these past 12 years and they now think it MAY have moved to some lymph nodes in the neck area. I had my thyrogen injections yesterday and today and then my radioactive iodine pill tomorrow, wbs scand friday and dr appt friday. They will tell me if I am to have surgery at this point or what as the radiation has not killed off these residual cells they keep seeing these past 12 years. I will just see what happens. It gets frustrating. Hang in there y'all
