I was diagnosed in Oct. of 08. and since then have had 2 surgeries. The first surgery was suposed to be a full thryoidectomy. the second surgery was the thyroiectomy completion. By the time they did the second surgery in Jan 09 the cancer had spread. They removed 7 lymph nodes some parathyroid glands and some of the muscle in my neck. (It became entangled in scar tissue from the first surgery) Now the doctors are saying that the plan is to do the Radioactive Iodine treatment.
As stupid as this sounds...
Is that it?
I know everyone keeps telling me thyroid cancer is the "best one to deal with" but it doesn't change the fact that they're throwing the word cancer around. Let alone after the first surgery the cancer spread like a bat out of heck.
HELLO WORLD I'M REALLY NEW TO TRYIN TO LOCATE OTHERS LIKE ME AND THE COMPUTER TO LOL. BUT ANYWAY HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME I'M 40 YEARS OLD AND SURVIVED STOMACH CANCER. IT ALL STARTED IN NOVEMBER OF 2007 I WAS EXPERIENCING ALOT OF STOMACH DISCOMFORT. I HAD ALOT OF FAITH IN THIS DOCTOR I HAD FOR OVER 15 YEARS. I WAS SENT TO DIFFERENT APPOINTMENTS OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS FOR SOME TESTING ON MY STOMACH. AFTER A NUMBER OF MONTHS PAST I BEGAN TO WEAKEN AND LOSE A GREAT DEAL OF WEIGHT. THE DOCTOR SAID ON A DR VISIT THAT I HAD ACID REFLEX AND SOME TYPE OF STOMACH INFECTION FROM A FOOD POISON.
AFTER ABOUT THREE WEEKS OF HORRIBLE STOMACH PAINS I RETURNED TO THE CLINIC FOR MORE TESTING AND MORE PAIN PILLS TO HELP WITH THE PAIN. BY THIS TIME I COULD BARELY CONTINUE WITH MY DAILY LIFE ROUTINE AND PLUS I HAD 2 BOYS THE AGE OF 16 AND 18 THAT SLOWLY NOTICE THE CHANGE IN THERE MOM. FINALLY MY 18 YEAR OLD SUGGEST THAT MAYBE I NEEDED TO SEEK A SECOND ADVICE BECAUSE I HAD BECOME A DIFFERENT MOM. I DECIDED AGAINST IT AND WENT BACK TO THE DR I HAD LAID ALL OF MY FAITH IN.

After a long struggle with what I thought were frequent bladder infections or a side effect of a drug I was taken to help with maintaining my hair and prostrate health, and two pretty severe attacks very similar to passing a kidney stone I was first diagnosed with something called Cystitis. Through the advice of my wife, I then got a second opinion at the University of Connecticut Medical group and was diagnosed with bladder cancer.
Its now been since August 2008 that I've been bouting with superficial bladder cancer...
