thyroid cancer; lymph nodes (cervical lymphadectomy)
I haven't posted for such a long time, I always hoped nothing would happen that I would have to. Well, long story short, my yearly thyroid cancer check is in progress, I had an ultrasound done a couple weeks ago, there are no thyroid tissues left (total thyroidectomy due to paprillary carcinoma) but they found enlarged lymph nodes (dr is calling it cervical lymphadectomy) so I have a RAI 123 booked for April 26th. I am concerned about it being cancerous, and where else the cancer may have reached- although I am hoping if thats the case a dose of RAI 121 will be administered and get rid of that all. My question: who has dealt with anything in relation to this? What was the outcome and how was is dealt with? Were cancer cells found anywhere else?
