I was dignosed in March 2010 with Hurthle cell Cancer of the thyroid with minimal invasion of 1 lymph node. My tumor was small 1.5 cm in size. I had 125 mci's of RAI at the end of April into the first part of May. I had a sonogram and my thyroglobulin levels checked. With the exception of one enlarged lymph node which is normal in appearance the sonogram was good. My thyroglobulin level was undetectable! So I am through the first hurdle and feeling good right now. We'll get another sonogram done in the future, keep checking the thyroglobulin, but I'm feeling good and positive! Just wanted to share the good news with the board! I'm working, I'm volunteering, and I'm living my life!! I don't get here often as I needed time to not think so much about thyroid cancer....the stories scared me so much, adn I just needed to get away from it for a while!
