If your thyroglobulin level is not at zero, doesn't this mean that you still have microscopic cancer cells somewhere in your body? My husband has had 5 re-occurances in the past 13 years, he has never been at zero. Our 16 yr old daughter, also with papillary carcinoma, had TT last June, and I-131 in July 2010. Recently, at check-up her thyroglobulin was 1.0 . The doc says the level can still come down to zero, because she is still in the process of therapy...other words her I-131 is still working. Has anyone had these same results....im worried and stressed to the max!
