Hi everyone! I just wanted to post some good news today. After the last month of hell emotionally and physically, I just got the phone call with the news that my full body scan came back normal! No signs of cancer, I am in remission! The diagnosis of Papillary carcinoma, the surgery Total Thyroidectomy, the Radioactive Iodine pills, the scan and now the wonderful news... I sat here and cried, thanking Jesus over and over and over again for about a half hour or so! The relief is over whelming and all I can do is thank God that what I went thru is really nothing compared to what God has spared my family and I from. Not to mention what other cancer survivors have endured. I know that I will have a lifetime of blood work, scans and medication but all I can say is bring it on. Those things are nothing in comparison to having cancer. I wish all of you well and I pray for everyone. I had such a bad experience with everything that if anyone ever needs to talk or has any questions it would be my honor to help in any way I could.

Cancer does not live here anymore! - I Beat It!

Thanks for your comments and prayers. When I heard the news I did cry and every time I think about it, I still cry. I think it will always make me cry after all we go thru for it to finally be over is so overwhelming. You will get these same feelings soon. I pray that this will be your last surgery and the day will be here sooner than you know it and you to will say "I'm a survivor". By the way, we have already planned our vacation! Thank the Lord. Good luck and God Bless You. Stay strong

Kimber, I'm so happy for you. I'm awaiting both a PET scan and total body scan with low-dose iodine for the third time due to my recent elevated TSH levels again. I've been praying that my results will show nothing, but I'm not quite sure I'll be satisfied if my TSH level is still so elevated, 121 to be exact.

Hugs to you girl!!!

Thanks for all of your posts! It means alot to me to have support from people that know exactly what we are all dealing with from day to day. I pray for both of you that the day your scan comes back "Normal" will be sooner than later. I know if your TSH is 121 you are feeling really crappy right about now. I know mine was like 60 when they gave me the RAI and I felt sooooo bad! I hope they can get your levels right and you can start feeling better soon. Good luck!! God Bless you all. This cancer is hell and it sucks, support is so important
