I have been hypo for 10 weeks now so I will try not to ramble:
Had total thyroid removed 5/7/10, Bloodwork cancer marker# 911.4
100 mc RAI 7/9/10, Bloodwork after Cancermarker# 68.4
So found out on Dec. 22 that my cancer marker number was 68.4 doc said it should be like.5 so the knew the cancer had spread so had to go off my meds and we did the full body scan on 2/9/11 then a CT on 2/22 that showed a large mass of lymph nodes involved on rt side and a mass under my clavicle that I was told could not be removed. We did the biopsy of the lymph nodes on 2/25 and are waiting for the results back on it but are fairly certain it will come back cancerous.
I have two questions:
The radiologist said something about possiable Lymphnomia(not sure if spelled right). What does that mean? Was a little shell shocked or would have asked my doctor.
Second I thought I saw someone else on here that had a mass behind the clavicle that couldn't be removed also and I have tried to find the thread but it's had for me to focus long and haven't been able to find it. Will it get killed with the much larger dose I will be getting? Sorry for being lengthy but wanted to give background to any that don't know my story.
BTW mine wasn't supposed to be cancer we were only going to remove the right side of thyroid because it was pressing on windpipe found out cancerous when biopsied second time while on operating table.
Thanks for any help,
