I'm in Marin county California just north of San Francisco. Had a "TT" for pap ca which people abbreviate as ptc. I'm ready for rai. Have any of you gotten a second or third opinion before getting rai ? If so, where is the best place or places in California or the USA ?
One doc said that I should consider getting the nodes on both sides of my neck removed before rai. No enlarged nodes can be felt, but there's a suggestion that removing the nodes on the sides might make rai more effective. Not sure I would want yet another surgery with no known benefit. What have you people done ? Have you gotten rai even with some "ptc" in the side nodes ?
