First, sorry for so many questions but I am curious as to symptoms others have had with this. I am new to this site and at this point there is only a suspicion of this Medullary Thyroid cancer and Pheochromocytoma...I have some questions and would very much appreciate any sharing of knowledge.
At time of diagnosis for Pheo- Did anyone have just elevated Metanephrines that were not 3-4 times the normal range?
How large was the Thyroid nodule at diagnosis? I have a 1.5 cm on left side along with two other smaller ones on each side but they say the two smaller ones are more cystic?
I was surprised that the larger nodule was more left middle as I have sensation of something in right side when I swallow?
Were blood tests for Chromogranin A and Calcitonin elevated at time of diagnosis?
Anyone with this have large sores on their back or fingernails with bumps?
Embarrasing to ask but, I have battled constipation entire life and what has really been strange is the fact here over past few months I have had episodes where I get severe stomach cramping and have bowl movements where it is like my entire colon is emptied at once(extremely large movement)anyone else?
