Hi everyone....on April 3, 2002 I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. I had a near total thyroidectomy 22 days later and the ablation with radioactive iodine in late august. It was quite a shock to me since I take care of myself by eating right and working out a lot. It was possibly the most devestating thing to ever happen to me or my family. I was just put back on my Synthroid about 3 weeks ago and it is like an emotional rollercoaster. Ij ust need to know that it gets better. I still have good says and bad days....after all this is not supposed to happen to someone who is 21 years old. I may not have children anymore becuase my doctor told me that it is a strong likelyhood that my daughters would have what I have. It has taught me so many things, things that I couldn't learn without experiencing it.
