cytome/ pappilary thyoid cancer
I am 2 weeks out from a total thyroidectomy and lymph node dissection (18 lymph nodes removed and 16 were cancerous.) Has anyone else had that many lymph nodes involved? Also, I would like some input on distant metastasis, If it is common etc, I am very concerned about that. I have been taking cytomel since my surgery and I am exhausted, so tired I feel like I have the flu. Is this normal? Also, what is it like when they take you off your meds to prepare for RAI treatment. I am hoping someone can share their experience with me. Thank you in advance.
