Hi all: I'm new and looking for anyone who has had a high post-surgical Tg.
Early May: Dx -- papillary carcinoma
One question I have is whether my high number can be attributed to thyroiditis-like symptoms at diagnosis (tender thyroid, quick enlargement, mixture of hypo and hyper symptoms).
Could the remaining tissue be high in Tg because of thyroiditis and not necessarily cancer?
Haven't asked my doc this question yet.
Nuke doc says he's "very concerned" and we'll likely do a CT scan in 4 months to look for tumors. After that, another RAI around January. Haven't talked to Endo yet.
