I had my thyroid papillary cancer 1.5cm and a 4mm and 1 central lymph node surgery in Dec and had RAI about 10 days ago 153 millicurie. I just had my whole body scan today and it showed 4 lymph nodes in the lateral neck, 2 on each side. I am so bummed out. Why didn't I get this scan beforehand so I could have the info for the original surgery. Now what do I have to have surgery again? Was the RAI strong enough to get these lesions? UGH I have to go back on Monday for more pictures of neck (and residual bowel that part will clearup). Has anyone had experience in this? I woudl like any news thanks. I was hoping to put this behind me today yet this cancer is starting to annoy me.
