Re: My first post - need some help w/ my thyroid problems
my biopsies (sp?) were different, he did a needle biopsy with no numbing, and it was a "stick"and over with. I don't do needles well, but that I could deal with. I agree with the others about getting the biopsies done and not waiting. When the nodules were discovered, I had radiation testing that showed no thyroid cancer. Now, on the other hand, this dr. never discovered the Ha'Shimoto's so, perhaps he should/could have done a better test.
Now, I feel I must voice my opinion here: if I don't like a doctor, or I feel that I want a second, third or different opinion, I will change drs really quick. I am not trying to criticize anybody, but the drs are all human and subject to error. I am ultimately in charge of my medical health, and currently am going to drive 50+ miles one way to see an endo.
