  • Forum Post: Re: Any one who might know??

    Hi Clare, After being diagnosed with cancer and having your thyroid removed you have been through a difficult time. With levothyroxine you replace the natural missing hormone your body used to make in the thyroid. If you stop taking your medication you will become hypothyroid but it takes a while...

  • Forum Post: Hallo. LID and E127 - I just discovered this and wanted to share in case it's useful

    Hallo, I'm new here. :-) I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last autumn, have had the surgery and am waiting for a date to go into the Christie for radioiodine. I've semi-started the LID, reducing the foods I love before cutting them out completely so I don't feel as if I'm going "cold...

  • Blog Post: Better late than never

    Firstly welcome, please accept my apologies for not doing this sooner, be prepared to read exactly how it is, every little meltdown, I have decided already that the meltdowns will appear as they happen and then I will also write a reflection as the two are very very different. as when they happen...
  • Forum Post: Re: Transition from T3 to T4

    Hi Mazzamo Gosh what a time of it your having and you must feel all over the place. I have just been on T4 now 2 and half weeks and it seems to be going ok. I had thyrogen too for my scans there in Jan, so never came off the T3 like yourself. I think that has made the swap to T4 so much easier...
  • Forum Post: Re: New Diagnosis

    Hi Munky Boy Sorry you have to join us here, but welcome and come along anytime with your questions etc. I found out within a week of tests at the start, so it can be a bit of roller coaster. You can read my profile and see that even though I have been through alot, the outlook is great and now...
  • Forum Post: Re: Feeling really poorly after RAI last week- help!

    Hi Powergrrl Sorry your not feeling great after RAI. Most people never feel anything having it, but I was really sick too. The morning after the capsule I was wrenching so bad I could hardly breathe and felt nauseous and had some vomiting the 3 days I was in. When I got home I had a wee bit of wrenching...
  • Forum Post: Re: Anxious about surgery next week

    Hi Gems2 All the best for next week. What type of neck dissection are you having? I was very anxious about surgery, it really consumed me in the end and I had to phone my doctor, he give me Diazepam for the last few days leading up to the surgery. This helped me loads and just one or two tablets...
  • Forum Post: Re: Radio Active Iodine treatment

    Hi Essdee People will have lots of different experiences and here is mine. Also depends on each hospital. I spent only 3 days in RAI, maybe would have been less, but it was the weekend and the nuclear guys didn't work then, so measurements couldn't be taken. I flushed the stuff out really...
  • Forum Post: Re: Lack of voice

    Hi Essdee That is hard. I have no vocal cord damage either and I can't sing anyways, but I do find I can't reach high out of tune they may be, notes, my voice stumbles. Also when I speak too much, my voice goes all strained, not as much as it used to. I am nearly 7 months post op. I had a...

  • Blog Post: A Lifetime of cancer - Sometimes

    It's funny where your brain takes you at 4 in the morning, this is what my brain decided to do at that time last night: SOMETIMES Sometimes we laugh, Sometimes we cry, Sometimes we wonder oh why, oh why, Sometimes we moan, Sometimes we mope, Sometimes it’s because...
  • Blog Post: A lifetime of cancer 02 October

    Still feel exhausted by the last few months and think it feels worse as the dark nights draw close. Where did our summer go again? I think this is the worst part, when you are back and forth to the hospital for treatment you seem to go from one day to the next not realising what day it is. Feel bad because...
  • Blog Post: lifetime of cancer 30/09/2009

    Well October is nearly upon us and I cannot get my head round where another year has gone. Way back in Dec 1995 the docs told us it would be a couple of weeks chemo after the first op then another op and then it was highly unlikely that it would ever return. The words - if you had to pick a cancer then...
  • Blog Post: Low Iodine Diet Help - www.thyca.org

    Hi, I was reading the messages and found myself somewhat relieved to see the term "Hurtle", as I too had the diagnosis of Hurtle Cell Cancer about 4 months ago. So I guess it was a comfort. I had my RAI just over a month ago. I have worked in between my surgeries (two) and I am back at work...

  • Blog Post: Turn myself inside out

    The one comment that gets e down and i know this sounds so silly is when someone says you look well or you look better.
