Unhappy follicular cells/surgery tomorrow

I am a 29 year old female who has a lump on the right thyroid gland. I had a FNA biopsy performed 2 weeks ago and the results came back with follicular cells. My surgery is tomorrow morning to have the right lobe and isthmus removed so it can be looked at further. The doctor said I have an 80% chance of it being benign, but I'm worried because it's a single, solid nodule. I would appreciate ANY words of wisdom you guys could share. Oh yeah! My blood levels were "normal". Thanks in advance! Tonya

i know nothing of follicular cells, but beware, oh beware! the doctors/nurses/hcp's who talk about "normal" -- lord, if only they knew!

good luck w/your surgery tomorrow, and here's hoping the doctor is right ...
