Hi, I am a young wife and mom going through my first round of thyrogen injections/body scans, etc. to check on how effective treatment was.
I'm wondering if anyone has had residual thyroid tissue show up during a follow-up body scan? I panicked when I saw it on the screen but the Nuclear Med doctor didn't seem concerned by it at all because my initial thyroglobulin numbers have come back low, undetectable the last time. However, those numbers were all taken while my levels were suppressed. We are currently awaiting the results for my thyroglobulin levels and will go from there. If the numbers come back 'normal', I'm guessing they won't do anything....but I still hate knowing that there is anything left in there after surgery and treatment. Any thoughts? Thank you...I really don't want to go through surgery and/or treatment again but would rather do that and know that it is ALL gone!
