Thyroid Cancer Survivor 2 years!

I never knew in 2010 that my strange symptoms would lead me to find out that I had thyroid cancer!! I had upper abdominal swelling and joint pain. (which I am having again and trying to figure out what it is). I asked the endo doctor if those were symptoms of the cancer and she said no, but that if it led me there then God does truly work in mysterious ways. Anyway it's been two years! YAY!
I had to have radioactive iodine treatment. It was funny because my husband works at a nuclear reactor...

My Thyca Battle

Posted 12-02-2012 09:27 AM by Skiyrizer

Well I have been in quasi-remission now for 1 year and 6 months. I am going to celebrate at my 2 year anniversary very soon! What a trial this has been and one that has truely made me stronger both spirtually, emotionally, physically, and mentally.

Although not everything is peachy... I am emotionally sensative right now because there is a trace amount of thyca left they found on ultrasound. My endo recommends to remove it while my surgeon says no, because it's so small and hard...

I am so sick and not sleeping

I've been very sick with many diseases and disorders for quite awhile. I am so sick and not sleeping, evidently due to this hyperthyroidism whose cause hasn't been established. I'm intelligent, but I sound like I'm not when I lack sleep.

I was diagnosed with psoriasis, Hepatitis C, psoriatic arthritis, Type 2 Diabetes, Cirrhosis (from the Hep C) and my doctor has told me my thyroid is overactive, but he's given no real diagnosis on that yet. I'm tired of feeling crappy.

Not knowing where to start, I'm going to list the diseases and disorders I have to contend with:

Psoriasis
Psoriatic Arthritis
Hepatitis C
Cirrhosis
Glaucoma
Hyperthyrodism (Uptake tests tomorrow 3/30)
Supra Ventricular Tachycardia (SVT)

The hyperthyroidism is in the process of being diagnosed. I took my radioiodine pill today and tomorrow I go for a number of tests. They call it an uptake test, but maybe there are more than...
