I had my thyroid removed a year ago in Jan. they removed 3 lymph nodes in my neck, so I had to have the radioactive iodine tx. I was in nursing school and scared that I wouldn't make it! Now, I still am in the nursing progam and worried that my cancer will come back. Everyday I am scared to death that I will develop a tumor again and will have to drop out of school! I don't ever want to go through that scarey time again, however I feel like I'm worried everyday that it will come back. I have had a 4 pound ovarian benign tumor in the past that I had to have surgically removed, so I'm always Paranoid that I will get another tumor that isn't treatable! That is my worst fear, and I feel like I have lost all control in my life! I try to stay strong for my husband because he worries so much about me, he hurts too! Will this feeling ever end? Does anyone have any advise???? I have headaches when I wake up and when I go to bed....
