In November 2009 I had a Total Thyroidectomy for Papillary Carcinoma; in December 2009 I had the RAI, 150mcgs. That day and the next from the RAI both of my glands swelled up and I looked like a chipmunk, very painful, went away after a few days.
Yesterday May 16, 2010 (5month later) I woke up with pain in my right jaw, cheek area.
So, I call my Dr. my Endocrinologist that is supposed to take care of these types of things and her nurse calls me back and tells me the doctor says I need to follow-up with my Primary Care Physician or my Dentist!
Hello! What is that? I thought my endocrinologist should take care of this, what should I do. I don’t feel like I should call my dentist or my primary care Dr and have to go thru more scans and ultrasounds for what?
Shouldn’t my endo dr. take care of this? What is happening? Should I find another Dr?
I'm worried! Thanks everyone!
