Re: Thyroglobulin went up
It's strange that her tg never went to undetectable as it should have. Have they been keeping her tsh suppressed?
If you are in NY you should consider going to sloane---they have a lot of studies on thyroid and may even determine that there's nothing to worry about. It's hard to get in, so you have to start the process as soon as you can.
Also, did she have tg antibodies that were positive? If so, then tg isn't the best tumor marker for her. I don't think there is any emergency here, but she should follow up with the best team of doctors she can find. In the worst case, she may have a pet scan. This cancer is usually not deadly, nothing to get yourself too upset, just go through the process. You are a great daughter. With pappillary, a negative neck ultrasound is a really good sign.
