I hope other people have input to provide;
two years after removal of cancerous thyroid and RAI 123 pill, my antithyroglobulin antigen level was very high so,
I Spent one and a half years taking scans, PET< CAT, biopsy, etc etc, nothing was ever 'conclusive' until last January lymph nod removed for reocurrance of thyroid cancer.
Now antigen is low.
but physician wants me to have RAI 123 scan
NOW, here is ADDITIONAL conundrum
After four years of this, plus having bradycardia and pacemaker implanted, my superintendent is chastising me for 'excessive use of sickday' I have used up all my sick days due to above.(even tho I tried to have tests done during summer, it took SO long to do all of these............
My INCREMENT is being WITHHELD (as punishment?)
Has anyone else experienced this?
So many many tests,
and, being discriminated against for having cancer too???!!
