    Help understanding past and present results please.

    Here are my blood for 12/2005:

    T-4, Free 1.7 (0.8-1.8 range)
    TSH 0.02 (0.40-5.50)
    T3, Total 290 (60-181)
    These are the #s that the Dr. diagnosed me with hyperthyroid 2005.

    Blood work for 2008:

    T-4, Free 1.2 (0.8- 1.8)
    TSH 1.31 (0.40-4.50)
    T3, Free 335 (230-420) Not sure what the difference is between T3, Free and T-3 Total from 2005.

    I am within "normal range", but have all the same symptoms as 2005 when diagnosed hyper. Have been off meds for 1.5 years.

    12/2005 Ultrasound results:

    right lobe measures 4.9x2.1x1.2cm; left 4.9x1.8x1.3cm. thyroid gland overall normal size.The parenchymal pattern is heterogeneous and shows several nodules. A colloid cyst in right lower pole 3x3mm. A nodule seen is upper pole on right 2.2mm. Nodule seen is the isthmus 3mm. left upper pole a 5x3mm ovoid solid nodule is seen as well as 2mm nodule.

    2008 Ultrasound:

    right 4.9x1.6x1.6cm. left 4.9x1.4x1.5cm. Multiple nodules identified. For example, nodule near the isthmus on right, in the mid polar region measures 5x3x5mm and appears solid. There is a cyst near the lower pole measuring 3x4x2mm. On left there is a solid nodule medially near the isthumus measuring 6x6x5mm.There is another solid lesion containing calcification noted measuring 7x8x6mm which is also in the mid polar region. There is a third smaller solid lesion measuring 3x3x2mm in lower pole.
    Findings are suggestive of multinodular goiter.

    Dr. is sending me to specialist at UCLA hospital. When I called for appointment the specialists office made me an appointment to have a FNA before coming in to see him. I am wondering why, as I have been told and also have read hear that they do not do FNA on nodules under 1cm. Is this incorrect information? Or is there a different reason that some of you more educated in this thyroid area see that would have them wanting a FNA with nodules under 1cm?
    Thanks for reading, I know this is long. I am not freaking out about cancer or anything, I am just trying to get some information before I go to appt on Tuesday.
