Re: Subtotal Thyroidectomy Then Regenerated Tissue and Possible Repeat Thyroid Surger

Hi Reece!

Thank you for your quick reply. I am so sorry to see that you have had thyroid cancer. I hope you had great doctors and that your treatment was successful. I am with Kaiser now and have to use their specialists, so I don't think I can go to a specialized cancer treatment facility. They are still keeping me suppressed at .03 but it doesn't seem to keep the tissue from growing back. The right lobe that was removed has regenerated and is now larger than the left lobe that was left intact. I also had a vertebral compression fracture and was diagnosed with osteoporosis (before Kaiser) then Kaiser took me off the Boniva telling me that adjusting for my age my z score was in the normal range. I think that the suppression therapy is affecting my bones even though I'm taking Oscal w/ vitamin D. Could the bone issues mean cancer has metastasized??
