Papillary thyroid cancer. In 1999, I had my thyroid removed and most of the lymph nodes on the right side of my neck. I had 2 consecutive years of I 131 treatments. In 2001, the scan/uptake was negative. How often do you go back for the follow up scan/uptake since being "negative". I am dreading going back for those tests because of all the anxiety it creates.
