Question Thyroid more than one surgery?

Hello I am wondering if anyone can comment or has had experience with the following scenario:

basically after undergoing the surgery, the patient has recieved 2 rounds of radioactive iodine treatment, there are still some cells in the neck area, and the doctor has advised that the area where they are located does not respond well to the radioactive treatment and has advised for a 2nd surgery to remove some skin tissue.


Thank you in advance.
