Hello all -
In 2007 my Tg levels started at 236 six weeks after TT and right neck resection (18 of 26 nodes were pos.) Had another resection 9 months later (12 of 18 pos.) Six months ago I had a negative PET and MRI but Tg still at 14. Doc says I must be non-avid. Tg is going to be checked in 2 months.
Questions: #1) should I continue to prep as low iodine until I get a clear Tg reading or try the Thyrogen prep? #2) What now. I feel like a ticking time bomb while my Tg is up but no clear tumor mass.
Thanks again for your responses. - Susan
