I had my thyroid removed on January 14, 2010 due to having papillary carcinoma. The surgeon stated the tumor was just contained to my thyroid. He stated he did not have to remove any other surrounding nodes. I sure hope he is right. I go next week to see him and get the pathology report. My question to anyone is "How long does it take before you get your normal voice back". My kids tease me and tell me I sound like I have a been smoking for 20 years. Also I am extremely emotional. I can cry at a drop of a hat. I am taking the thyroid replacement pills. So any suggestions or tips on how to get my emotions under control so I can deal with some relationship issues would be great.
