follicular thyroid cancer- lymph node showing in neck ultrasound post bilateral thyroidectemy in 2005

My doctor called about my yearly ultrasound yesterday and said he could see lymph nodes on my scan and made an apt for me with a endocrinologist. The ultrasound tech told me at the time that if I had any kind of infection it would show. I had a sinus infection at the time. The doctor did not mention the likelihood of a the two being related. I was wondering if anyone else has been there.

My choices are to have the ultrasound again and see if there is a difference or go off my synthoid for six weeks and have another I131 uptake scan. I have two small children and I am the primary caregiver. While I do not look forward to the prospect of being "down" for six weeks, I understand the diagnostic necessity. I had planned on this test for the summer when my husband is here to help.

Thank you,
