Re: I hope Iam not being a pest but I need help
Okay. I am not a scan expert, but I have looked over my mothers scans a good bit.
First with that TSH you are major hypoT and need replacement hormones.
In general they look at size of each lobe:
In your case one side is slightly larger than the other.. thus the nodes are heterogeneous in size.. i.e. not the same.
The actual tissue consistency is heterogeneous as well.. non-uniform. However you have no defined nodules of significant size in your thyroid at this time.. instead you have a bunch of tiny nodules spread out through out the thyroid.
The uptake scan would have shown a cold zone in any node that was completely dead or none functional zones with in the lobes. If you had Graves disease you would have had hot zones which gleamed bright white or yellow in color. Cold zones are blue/purple/grey.
Basically you had good news. Your thyroid is enlarged and inflamed by being hypoT and working its tail off only to still fail to meet your needs. There are no defineable cysts of nodes of sufficient size to biopsy and the uptake scan didn't indicate Graves.
This is my interpretation of it. But there are others with a lot more experience in the matter out there.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
