I got my pathology reports back yesterday, and they are getting a second opinion. The reason for that is because the follicular cells they found are Hashimoto's, but because they are similar to cancer cells, they need to test again. He said something about papillary something or other too...have read up on this stuff, but I just wanted to know what other thyroidectomy surgery people's findings have been.
He also said there were multiple nodules, the biggest being 5mm. The good thing is that when I had my ultrasounds and biospies done, the biggest they found then was almost 2. It was my decision to get the surgery, so I am glad I did. Follow my gut!
