Re: update: waiting on surgery
It's a great place to vent here.
I'm so sorry you're feeling so awful. As far as mono, I've heard it can last 6 or 7 months so hopefully, you're almost through with it.
I'm glad your doctor wantss to remove it and not just half of it like a lot of doctors do. Can I ask why you had to have radiation on your throat? Did you have cancer before? The reason I ask is I think I may have had radiation on my throat when I was very young but I'm not positive and there's no one I can ask now. My mom is dead and dad has alzheimers.
I've read that people with thyroid problems have a higher risk of endometriosis. My sister found out she had that when she had a hysterectomy.
I have trouble with shooting pains down my left thigh from the groin area almost to my knee. Those are EXTREMELY painful, I know. They almost bring me to my knees. I have some neurological problems myself that have for the most part gotten better since I've been on meds for my thyroid. Hopefully, your symptoms will subside once your thyroid is out and you're regulated on meds.
As far as taking it out on your dear husband, I did the same thing to mine. I was a _itch with a capital B! I HATED what I did to him. But I have to remember that that person was not me. I was very sick at the time. Remember, thyroid problems affect our brains too. That means our moods are affected, our personalities are affected, our thoughts are affected, our feelings are affected and our perception is affected. Please don't be hard on yourself. You're going through a hard enough time right now.
Live, Love, Laugh.
