I'm 37 year old female, who was recently diagonised with pappillary thyroid carcinoma in July 2010. I also had the same dialogue that it was one of the best cancer to be had.(yeah right) I was mis-diagonised with pneumonia twice before being reffered to to a pulmonary specialist, who suspected lung cancer, and when I opted to wait instead of lung biopsy, I had an FNA of the thyroid and swollen lymph node which was inconclusive. I opted for TT in Aug 2010. It was a 10 hr surgery, with a knicked vocal chord. I ended up in ICU for 2 weks, as I had to learn how to swallow again.
This was followed by a high dose of RAI. when my TG was done, it came back as very high it is 1500. I started looking at all the websites about high Tg count and got worried more as people were talking abt high Tg count when they were talking abt it being in double digits. I am now beyond the point of worry and at the point of taking things as they come. can anyone comment would appreciate it
