First off I wanted to say thanks to all of you who came by my earlier post. Know that all your comments, advise, and friendly words of encouragement are greatly appreciated. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside and not as scared as I was when I came aboard.
I just wanted to update on some results that I had mentioned that I was getting back today. Some good news - the thyroid was non-cancerous YEAH! However, they did diagnose me with Hoshimotos (what a strange name). I knew that there was some wacky stuff going on with my thyroid so I'm glad that I have finally rec'd a diagnosis and they can start adjusting my meds. Confirmed that I'm defintely in menopause from the chemo 9 years ago - imagine that LOL... so they are going to test for any bone loss ect... that goes along with all the menofun!
So now its just these darn swollen glands. I get checked by the ENT on Friday and then will follow-up with my Onco Doc on Monday. So another anxious weekend in store for this chick. But all in all I'm blessed for the good news today ~ I will take that and run. Hugs ~ Andrea (Hodgkins stage4 - remission)
