Hello Im a 37 year old female. I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer 3 yr ago. I had my thyroidectomy already, along with my thyroid, I had 18 lymphnodes, a inch diameter of neck tissue and my thymus gland were removed. I was stage 2 papillary. I had the highest dose of Radioactive Iodine and ever since I have been good. No cancer return. But does anyone else ever go into panic mode? Whenever Im sick or something out of the ordinary health wise happens to me I go off the deep end. I google my symptoms and check for every ailment that my symtoms can lead to. I make myself crazy and I wont even mention the lengths I have gone to make sure I dont have cancer again. My poor husband and friends can only do so much before they start to think I really am crazy. If they dont already think so. I have a wonderful husband, and two great kids. But I get depressed, worried that I might get cancer again. I have become somewhat of a pessamist when it comes to my health. my recent health scare is (sorry men) I have had my period for 23 days. I went to my general practioner on Feb 26th. Since my thryoid meds was changed early December and I missed a dose while on my period he thinks its hormonal. He put me on the b/c pill for two weeks to stop it but it hasmt completly stopped I still have two days to go. I saw him again on march 5th and he told me to finish my one pack of b/c pills and if it is not gone by then, I would have to take Provera and it should end then. My biggest concern is Leukemia and yes Ive googled everything under the sun for this. My Dr. did do a cbc and check to make sure I wasnt anemic. Had cbc done twice because I told him about my concern of Leaukima. all test came out fine nothing abnormal. Is there anyone else who just feels like me. I do want to not worry but its like something inside makes me worry. If I knew of others who go through what I go through I would feel better. Please tell me Im not alone and thanks for listening.
