Re: blood in mouth and Thyroid

I had a biopsy and everyone told me it wouldn't hurt and it didn't. They give you a local numbing and that's the only thing that stung. The actual biopsy is a breeze. I was a little sore for about 3 weeks with a small bruise and a mild sore throat. But that is normal, it all went away. I have a ct scan on wed. with contrast. If nothing else shows than I am going to stop worrying for a while. What is the latest on all of your test? Good luck!
I had a CT w/contrast first to rule out a pulmonary embolism and they discovered the nodules and recommended a Ultrasound. I have an appt. with a endocrinologist on the 14th of June. I suppose they will do a biopsy then. I'm scared. Anytime your heart rate goes up pass 120 your in danger of a clot. I have been healthy all these years and no heart problems but since I got this heart rate issue caused by my malfunctioning thyroid they put me on Lopressor 50mg XL I take it when I need it and not everyday usually every 3 days is all I can tolerate its because it cause me Atrial flutter. You need to watch your heart rate first of all and if it isn't to high then your okay. My heart rate went up to 150 and 180 last week. That is really dangerous and it feels like it is coming out of my chest pounding so hard.
