Hi! I am new here. I had a TT on April 15,2009 due to papillary ca. They also removed 11 lyph nodes, where 9 were positive. I had the RAI in June followed by a WBS which was negative. I had a follow up scan in December the same year and everything was still negative. I never got copies of my bloodwork but doctor said everything looked good. Well, that doctor moved out of state so I am now seeing someone new. I just had a WBS 2 weeks ago, which was again negative. They called 2 days later and said my thyroglobulin level was undetectable but my antibodies are elevated and have been since my surgery (which the other doctor never told me). I went for an ultrasound of my neck this past Thursday and there is several suspicious lymph nodes in my neck. I am waiting to hear from my doctor to see what all this means and what we are going to do. In the mean time I am worried to death! I haven't slept since Thursday and just want to scream!! Does anyone know what it means to have your antibodies high but everything else look normal? Why wouldn't these lymph nodes have shown up on the WBS?
Stressed in Louisiana!!
