Smile having TT tomorrow

well tomorrow is the big day for me. i have to admit that i am not as scared as i was when i first joined this board but am still nervous. i stopped doing research because that only made matters worse for me but then my mom told me that my cousin had a tt in early july and hers came back w/cancer and malignant.does this stuff run in families? bless my mothers heart for telling me that just before i have mine. while that info could have waited until after i had surgery ,i know shes only being helpful,i think!!!going to see my surgeon today and have an armful of questions for him -the most important being "will i ever be able to wear a necklace again?" LOL. i have many of them but within a few minutes of putting them on i feel like i am being choked and usually cant get them off fast enough.i end up panicing and breaking them. does anybody else have this happen to them? well gotta go.thanks to all for your words of support. will keep you posted.

Re: having TT tomorrow

Just want to wish you the best of luck tomorrow! I know I'd be nervous too.
Hope your surgeon answered all your questions to your satisfaction.

Re: having TT tomorrow

I have a cousin who also had thyroid cancer when she was really young, she is in her 40's now. I had a TT last year and mine came back benign, it never cross my mind that I could have cancer only because my cousin had but I know that thyroid disease runs in my family, actually that cousin is the only one with thyroid cancer in a long family history with thyroid issues.
Good luck to you tomorrow!!!
