Hi. I am new to the board & would like to help. I had a total thyroidectomy (papillary & dif. ca.) 7 lymph nodes removed & parathyroid resection & 1-131 rx. In Spring I will be 10 years cancer free. If I can help ease anyones fears, I would love 2 help. Back in those 'olden days' when I was diagnosed we didn't have a pc in our home)to discuss things like this. LOL.
