Hi Barbara
I had surgery for a 2.6cm Hurthle cell tumor on Dec 12th of 06.I had RAI a couple of weeks later.I am on 200mcg of synthroid now and i feel great(im a 45 year old male)I had a really good surgeon and all of my scans have been clear since.I have one more WBS at the end of July and if thats clean then i will get an ultrasound every 3 years and a yearly blood test.I have since changed my diet to keep my immune system operating at a very high level.
Through diet,supplementation and exercise ive gone from 190 down to 165lbs in 18 months and i feel way better than before my surgery.Best of luck to you.Stay positive and be proactive in your treatments and im confident you will beat this and be healthy again!
To your good health
