Hello every one
I am worried about my health, everything is new and frankly I am scared. I was diagnose don dec 17th with Multi Focal Papillary Cancer with right 9 mm and 4 mm lesions. I have had a total thyroidectomy and and will have an RAI ablation at the end of the week (100 millicurries) and a post treatment scan a week after that.
My questions are
Where can I look or find out about a prognosis for Multi Focal Papillary Cancer? I have looked at the suggested sites but am having a hard time finding a definitive answer.
What can I really expect after the RAI? My physician acts like everything is going to be right back to normal but people I have spoken with and logs I have read lead me to believe that at the very least I will be very tired.
Does LID really have to be so time consuming? It seems like the LID is not that difficult as long as fresh foods are used, obviously some are omitted, and sodium/iodine is avoided its just that because everything should be fresh it is very time consuming. Am I operating under the right premise?
When will my real voice comeback? The voice I have now is reminiscent of Marge Simpson and I couldn’t scream if my life depended on it. I had the surgery on 5 December.
Thank you all so much, it is truly appreciated!!
