Your posts have been invaluable and I am going to fax my doctor today w/ various posts. There are alot of scared people out there and they all need support & information. I worked for the American Cancer Society in the 80's, so I had some fast info, but we never focused on thyroid cancer and I ran the education programs/activities like great american smokeout/smoking cessation groups, breast self exam, diet & colorectal cancer, etc. Many don't know what questions to ask & docs don't have the time to educate & answer tons of questions or give all the details, in addition to having many different personalities...
I like my endo., as she tries to explain but sometimes all the details don't stick w/ me even though I'm a very detailed person (or was in past years).
I will let you know what I find out from my endo. Thanks so much!
