Surgery for Thyroid cancer

Hi there,

I just found out I need surgery for Thyroid Cancer. I have a 11 cm nodule that is cancerous plus I had a cervical mapping done and they found out I might have another one very close by to the thyroid. I believe in the lymph nodes.

I heard that some people have trouble speaking, eating or drinking.

Was wondering how other people have done after this surgery and if you had any problems afterwards.

Thanks,

Smileyhappy.

Re: Surgery for Thyroid cancer

I had a total removal of my thyroid in 2007 (at age 43) and I had no problems at all after surgery. I could talk as soon as I woke up in recovery and have had no issues with talking, eating or anything. Everything will be fine. Wishing you the best!
