I had my thyroid removed in November 2008 with a RAI ablation in December 2008 to treat Papillary carcinoma. I am now in a very confused state after my 6 month routine check-up with my endo yesterday. She has prescribed a two shot Thyrogen treatment and then a total body scan a day later. What will the TBS show with no RAI? Is she concerned the cancer is coming back? After reading many of the posts so far, I now realize that I was in a very rose-colored world. I was a true believer that once the thyroid was removed, so was the cancer, but now I realize this may not be the case. Thanks in advance for any accurate information you can provide. My thyroglobulin results will be back next week.
