  • Forum Post: Just Diagnosed

    Hi All My story so far I had an u/s of my neck in February and was referred to the endocrine department. After the secretary failed to make my appointment on two occasions I finally got an appointment mid April. It was the beginning of May when I finally had my FNA of my enlarged lymph node...
  • Forum Post: Re: Initial Diagnosis

    Hi Lee I had my surgery 14 June. Nearly 5 months. I had a TT and right radical neck dissection. Getting there slowly, I am not good at being sick, I have never been ill, I find it hard to deal with at times. I can see things moving on now, which is great. If you make sure you write a list of questions...
  • Forum Post: Re: Initial Diagnosis

    Hi Lee Thyroid cancer diagnosis has a alot to do with age with regard to size, type and spread. When below 40 it doesn't matter what size your primary tumor is or if it has spread to the lymph nodes, it would be classed as stage one and is usually papillary like you have initially been told. ...
  • Forum Post: Re: Partner diagnosed with thyroid cancer

    Hi Lee Oh yes surgery is something I never thought I would have to deal with in life, it became the focus not the cancer. Before all this I was never in hospital, never needed stitches, never broken anything or even have fillings in my teeth, I only ever had blood taken once before and that was about...
  • Forum Post: Re: feeling lost, help needed

    Hi Sharon Have you only had one WBS. They can't tell if the cancer has gone from doing just one of those. I am kinda new to all this and others will be able to help more.

  • Forum Post: Re: It's all gone quiet over here......

    Hi Barbara Thanks, all you have said is so right. I would love a fast forward button, I am usually a very very busy bee and always on the go, now I am at a full stop.

  • Forum Post: Re: Newly diagnosed and feeling lost

    Hi Vintage There are different types of neck dissection, it basically means cutting out the lymph nodes (glands as we would know them as) in the side of the neck or around the thyroid at the front if they know its spread to the lymph nodes. Mine was a right neck dissection so I had to have a cut from...
  • Forum Post: Re: Newly diagnosed and feeling lost

    Hi Vintage Don't feel lost, just ask any questions you need to here. I was taking to a friend today who was saying she remembered us chatting over lunch before I had been to see about my lump and was like don't be silly it will be nothing. It was such a shock to find out it was thyroid...
  • Forum Post: Re: Preparing for RAI

    Hi Kimleannne I am glad he is all over the surgery. Being out after 8 days is great. I was only just getting out about weeks after. I can't fully comment on the body scan thing, as I am still waiting for an appointment with an oncologist. From what I have read, you have a body scan before treatment...

    Hi Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble with your voice. I am just going into week 7 post op from a TT and right radical neck dissection and I haven't had any voice issues as such, maybe just that I can't quite sing just yet, talking is ok. I think you are probably are being anxious...
  • Forum Post: Re: movement after TT and neck dissection

    Hi Leanne Thanks for message, I have no feeling in my ear either, he must have cut that, although they never said that at the time. I meant to ask such questions on Monday when I went for check up but was so ill when I got there, everything just went out the window. Surgeon came to see me at 7am morning...
