I'm a newbie. I was diagnosed in 2001 with papillary carcinoma. I had one nodule on the left side of my thyroid. I had a total thyroidectomy and RAI. All treatment was completed by April 2001. I have been on Levoxyl ever since.
I had a clean scan in September of 2001 and again in Dec of 2005. I went to my Endo in December 2008 and he drew my blood and suggested I have a neck CT with contrast and a chest X-ray since it has been 3 yrs since I had a scan. I had those tests done last Tuesday (Jan 6th).
I have not had the results back yet. I also haven't heard from my Endo about the bloodwork. I am hoping that this meant the markers were undetectable (*crossing fingers*!)
I am a worrywort and I managed to panic myself about recurrances quite a lot :o(
What kind of recurrance do people usually get? and what kind of treatment is given?
I am REALLY trying not to freak out.
