Does anyone know how fast your thyroglobulin levels are supposed to drop after lymph node surgery?
I had surgery on december 21 to remove lymphnodes and a blood test on February 21 and my results said my levels were at 14 and the antibodies were under 20.
My doctor wants me to have RAI again but I'm waiting to hear back from the BRAF gene mutation results before I want to decide to do RAI. Could it be that my levels just haven't dropped enough yet after surgery? I think they were at 16 before surgery.
I had a TT and 40 lymphnodes removed on Nov 23 09 for papillary cancer and radioactive on December 28 09. I had more lymph nodes removed December 21st 2010.
