Re: 2nd surgery - positive for cancer

I'm a little late on this, but wanted to see how you're doing? Did you have the second surgery or are they waiting for you to heal completely?

I went through the same thing back in May. My biopsy showed it was a follicular neoplasm and my ENT (along with a second and third opinion) said to only have 1/2 of my thyroid out, "chances are it's not cancerous". I pushed to have the entire thyroid out, but lost. Unfortunately, mine was cancer, a follicular variant of Papillary with hurthle cells. They waited 8 weeks and then did the second surgery on 7/25 and I'm healing nicely now. Just adjusting to the Synthroid at this point.
