Hello! I'm new here.. I've had Thyroid Cancer twice. I am 27 years old. First surgery they got my whole thyroid out, at least I thought that and also 2 canceroues lymph nodes. I had my second surgery on March the 10th 2009 to take put a thyroid residual. They took the piece out as well as 5 small metastatic cancerous lymph nodes, they were attached to the thyroid piece.
I Will be getting my Radioactive iodine soon on April. When I talk to the doctor she said that I am not cured yet and that the cancer moved from the thyroid area to a FIBRO ADIPOSE TISSUE.. I just want to know if there is someone that can relate to this. She said that this type of cancer is not going to take my life.. I want to trust her but I just want to make sure that she was not sugar coating things.. I would like to know what can I expect..
I wonder how difficult it's going to be to kill it with the pill if now the scenario it's different.. and I mean by where the cancer is now..
