I'm new here, I had papillary TC follicular VariNt in 2010, thyroidectomy in Oct. 10., RAI in Nov. 10. Ever since, I've had bouts of hoarseness, fullness in my throat, as if my food hasnt completely settled into my stomach, or like I have a pill stuck in my throat....much like I had before the TT surgery. I have episodes of severe hives, to the point that we are never without liquid/spray benedryl at home or in my purse. I've told this to my endo, and they say "Hmmmm tell your family dr" the family dr just brushes me off as well. Fine. Now I've got a lymph node, actually it feels like a little rope of lumps, enlarged and tender, under my ear and behind my jaw bone. I'm not sick, haven't been sick, no infections, nothing to get this flared. I called the endo and was told that I need to be seen asap! Monday morning at 8:30 is the earliest I can get in due to my work schedule, they wanted me in today! They were asking if my lymph nodes were removed during surgery, or if I've been "scanned" recently, etc! My neck is pretty itchy and red below the node, is this a real concern?? Anyone else have something similar? I mean, up till now, they have not been concerned about anything I've told them, now they want to see me asap! Just don't want to spend the weekend giving worry to something that doesn't need it!
