Boy do I have nerves jumping tonight. Against P's advice, I might have over searched the internet this past week, researching every word on my ultrasound report. My findings are they have lists of words that make a nodule suspicious, and those that don't. Of my 6 little friends (2 are huge, in reality) all of the words except for one, were found on the suspicious list. Only one word was on the better list.
As if the internet isn't bad enough, I went through the cd's -- one more time, and found them all... tinkered til I know every trick in the software to enhance and really see these guys. There are a few words they didn't put in the results that probably should have been included... unfortunately things that are found on the suspicious list.
I am afraid I might have to go cold turkey away from anything associated with Thyroids, until my appointment next Thursday morning when I meet with the surgeon and see what he sees. If I find my findings are right though, I am qualified for taking the medical boards... :)
To top it off, while at the opthamologist office today, he looked at my face and said oh wow, you have rosacea, and are starting to break out on your nose. This is the step after I turned bright red for 3 days last week from getting iodine dye.. little does he know, when I took a shower this morning, I had little bits of broken out skin all over my body (thank heavens it's winter and not shorts and tank top weather!) Here I thought no one would notice.
So if my hanging out here is too much, just wait, I am sure when my nerves subside next week, it'll be safe for me to go to other pagers such as google again, and I'll get quieter!
Back to biting my nails!
