Re: Can papillary thyroid cancer cause dizziness?
I know it's easy to say but there's no need to get too nervous. Things will be okay. What one imagines in these situations is usually far worse than reality.
The surgery went well. For me, the pain from the surgery was minimal, which was surprising. Don't get me wrong. There is some pain and discomfort. But it really is not that bad.
I am not back to work yet. I have only been out for one week. There is fatigue from the surgery and some adjusting to the medication. But that should improve very shortly.
If you haven't already, it's probably a good idea to share how you're feeling with your endocrinologist and/or surgeon BEFORE your surgery.
The scan and radioactive iodine treatment will probably happen within the next month or two, after my endocrinologist reviews the pathology results. Both my surgeon and endocrinologist are reassuring that the prognosis is excellent. It's a blip in the road, not a dead end, they told me.
