UI would like to know if any one was 100% cured after treatments?
After I had my thyroid removed and had one round of RAI I was cancer free. But what you also need to know is that mine was caught early, it was contained in my right lobe alone, it had not metastasized anywhere.
Had TT march 9 and went back to work yesterday!
Tumor was 8mm and I did not need RAI or body scan!
It is my understanding that you need to have continuious check ups for the next five years. If nothing shows up during that time, you are considered in remission. You still need to have your check-ups. At the current time I am 2 years free of the big bad "C", but keep very optimistic that I will stay that way. I always tell my ent that she and I are in it for the long haul.
