Re: 5-6 cm nodule, benign on fna, booked for lobectomy but now getting cold feet!

Just wondering if you are talking about Cheryl. Because Clara had surgery.

Re: Partial thyroidectomy - anyone's experiences?

Re: Curious, having subtotal Thyroidectomy Surgery on Thursday

I'm glad you're feeling well after the surgery. It's really not that bad a procedure. I've had worse pain just getting ill. :) But I'm glad you did what is right for you. Hopefully, as is the...

Re: Please help me

If the cyst is bothering you, you might end up needing to do whatever to either shrink it or remove it through surgery. Sounds to me also that you need another opinion because your doctor is kind of...

Re: Who can help me understand my FNA results and my Endo's advice?

Hi! I do not agree with the NP. You have a nodule that is exactly the same size mine was when I found it. It also contained hurthle cells. One of the differential diagnoses was follicular...

Re: Confused about test results...Thyroid issues?

The Microsomal AB is the same as the TPO Antibodies test I think. It tests usually for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. And you also have many of the symptoms of Hypothyroidism I'm pretty sure. Don't...

Re: Lab results and ultrasound question

You need to wait for the results, but my nodule looked like an oval shaped black hole. That's exactly what it looked like. As far as the colors go, this is what I believe. Please someone, correct...

Re: Surgical Staples in neck

My surgeon used dissolvable sutures. I think they're still there though. I don't know. I can't see them cause the tape or whatever it is hasn't fallen off yet. My surgery was only 2 weeks ago.

Re: Hashimotos--follow up ultrasound please help understand

Re: Large nodule- related to tiredness, lack of concentration and mood changes?

Grma.....I had a 3.4 cm nodule on my thyroid. It felt semi-hard. It was a complex nodule which means it was part solid, part cystic. It did not hurt. It turned out to be benign. There was very...

Re: If Thyroid is a hormone- can the gyno help ?

Under these circumstances, I would go to your GYN. She will be sympathetic to you and how you feel, I'm sure. Especially if it's going to take 2 months to see an Endo. Your blood pressure...

Re: TSH level 134 and Dr wants to wait 4 months

I am a novice at hormone problems because I don't have them yet even though I have hashimoto's. I have NEVER in my entire life heard of a TSH this high. Maybe it's just me. Yeah, I'd go see an...
