Re: Lab Results
Hi Holly, My bloodwork was barely within lab ranges.My TPO ab was 916 (normal range 0-32) YIKES. TPO means antibodies which means my body is fighting something off. Probably my thyroid. Have you had an ultrasound? How did you find your nodules? I saw mine while putting on lotion. I went for a phhysical and dr could not feel anything and asked if I had pulled a muscle in my neck! I went for an ultrasound the same day and there are multiple nodules. One was much larger than the rest so I had an FNA (Fine Needle Aspirartion). Not nearly as bad as they sound. The cells came back suspicious. That's where the RAIU comes in handy to see if your nodules are absorbing iodine. Hot absorb too much and cold absorb little or none. I have two cold and several hot. I see a surgeon tomorrow. I suspect she will say it has to go. I feel c***** all the time. Do you have any of the symptoms you have read about on healthboards? Nodules are very common and are not always a problem. Hopefully yours will be in that category. Try not to worry.
