My nodule shrunk!!!!!! On it's own!!!
I posted awhile back, but couldn't find the thread....
I got really really sick with something (still unknown) back in Feb this year. Back and forth to the doc about twice a week, and a few ER trips too.
In March, my GP ran bloodwork and everything came back fine. She was feeling my lymph nodes and ran her hand down my neck and said "wow, your thyroid feels big". Looked at the bloodwork again, checked everything and it was all in range.
She sent me for ultrasound, uptake scan, and biopsy. Turns out I have a complex cystic nodule. All fine...biopsy came back benign. Told me not to worry about it. I asked about seeing an endo and she said "no need". Well, I thought there was a need....
So I found a GREAT endo. She looked through all my paperwork, talked to me for an hour examined me, and said to come back in 3 mos. Then prescribed synthroid...said it would make me hyper til my body got used to it and to call if I had any problems. This was in April.
I googled synthroid & thyroid nodules and couldn't come up with anything that proved synthoid would actually do anything. And I have anxiety issues anyway, the last thing I needed to do was go hyper.
I also started seeing a naturopath, who told me that she treats ovarian cysts by rubbing castor oil on the area. She told me to use the castor oil on my neck, it certainly couldn't hurt. I asked her what she thought about Reiki and energy healing and, after being surprised that I brought it up, said she sees an energy healer regularly.
So I found a Reiki Master nearby, and have been to 6 sessions with her.
Last Friday I had my ultrasound and today I had the follow up with the endo. My nodule has shrunk! Not a huge amt, but it went from 2.8 x 1.6 x 2.2 to 2.8 x 1.4 x 2.2.
I told my endo that I chose to not take the synthroid and instead try alternative treatments and she just told me to keep up whatever I was doing because it was obviously working and she'd see me in 6 mos!
