Extracapsular Extension in PTC

Hi everyone, I'm new here!

I was just diagnosed with PTC and have surgery coming up on August 1st for a total thyroidectomy. My ultrasound showed that there was extracapsular extension into the strap muscles. Just wondering if anyone else has had this and how did it affect the surgery, recovery, etc. Did you have to have RAI treatments? 

Any info would be greatly appreciated! :)
