I just wanted to share with you my good news. I found out tonight that I don't have cancer and will not need surgery. Whew! I am incredibly relieved.
The biopsy showed that I have Hashimoto's Disease...
I asked my endo about testing my FT3 and about the possibility of taking Armour. She was fine about the test, but she does not prescribe Armour. Apparently, she hasn't had good results with some patients ("toxic" was the word she used). She is, however, open to the idea of giving me Cytomel in addition to my Synthroid. We'll see what my tests results show and go from there.
Thanks so much for your support and good wishes.
