Cancer: Thyroid board


I have had Thyroid Cancer for 3 yrs and tend to go to have hoarseness fairly often throughout the yr. Since I have begun to have RAI, I still show on the body scan that I have 2 spots left since the surgeries and RAI. They are located next to the lymph glands, so I was told that surgery was not an option last year. When I am taken off of the Synthroid to prepare for the RAI testing, I definitely go hoarse within 1-2 weeks and stay that way until ??? after testing. I do not have a thyroid left at all, so I don't know if those two spots can swell and cause this...I don't even know if they are still there. Any ideas? When people call me, they ask if they just woke me up and when they talk to me in person, it is very obvious I am losing my voice and I am questioned all day about it. It happened last year too....Thanks for any advice.....
