About a year ago I had a 3.2cm Hurthle Cell Carcinoma taken from my right lobe (thyroid), they then went and took out my left lobe which also had changes. I underwent radioactive iodine treatment. My blood results now show that my TSH is elevated at 2.1 and the doctor says it should be .01. I am about to go for a PET scan as he says this is the only way to tell if it has spread however due to the elevated TSH he believes it has. They have also have discovered that I have nodules on my lungs - multiple.
Has anyone else been there done that and can give me the good/bad news story. I am petrified to say the least
