Hi all,

Just wanted to share my news. I had my CT scan done today and immediately went up to the oncologist office....to wait for the results. He said it looks good! But we have to wait for the official report. I call next week for the official report.

I told him about my thyroid (multinodular goiter and the 3 nodules that have grown quite large) and he said that the biopsy definitely has to be done because RCC is the most frequent metastasis to the thyroid. It is not common, but something to be aware of!

So all in all, a pretty darned good visit with Uncle NED! Whose next?

Cheers!

Jojo

Jojo,

 

 

Hopefully Uncle NED has no trouble going back and forth across the border.

Bored with every day in the upper 80's here in South Florida. Supposed to get below 80 over the weekend. Anyone else nearby in South Florida or Palm Beach County?

I think they need some real icemen down here. I see it is going to be windy all the way from Detroit to Hamilton the next few days.

Iceman, yes the wind has been CRAZY windy here. Last week we had some strong winds as well. However no snow!!

I somehow don't feel so badly for you "suffering" through the 80 degree weather. Wink

Enjoy!

Hugs

Jojo

I am hoping the thyroid is fine...something to be easily fixed. This 2 year all clear is a big one! We are going on a trip! Yay!!! We haven't been on a trip together in 5 years. I CANNOT WAIT! (although we aren't going til February, but the planning is part of the fun!)

Hugs

not directly anyway. Hurray for no renal tumors. Great stuff. You'll find your thyroid is under a different stress. But they will fix that too. I think it can be amazing how healthy we can be while having major health issues at the same time. I've got your back JJ. FLY.

Great news!

Thyroid needs to be checked, of course, but if I'm not mistaken, any growths in thyroid can be easily removed.

So let's celebrate NED's visit! :-)

Foxy, you are so right. It is amazing how healthy we can be while having major health issues the same time. It is all relative, isn't it? So many friends here have proved it over and over again!

Thanks for having my back. Kiss

Hugs

Jojo

You were on my thoughts lately concerning your coming scan, and now you have the clean result, congratulations Jojo. Hope thyroid isn't malignant or anything serious, are you going to check it?

Forough

I was worrying with you. I'm glad the news is good. My Thyroid is all over the place as well. Good knows why

The silver lining of RCC - as I always have said - is it gave me the opportunity to meet this wonderful group of caring, lovely people.

I am truly touched by everyone's responses about my NED news.

I am still waiting for the biopsy appointment to be made (it is almost 3 weeks now since they told me...I have phoned and faxed and phoned again to see what is going on and it is likely going to be a few more weeks after that....only in Canada!) I have had a biopsy done 4 or 5 years ago, but the nodules have grown quite a bit since then. And I don't know if it psychological but I feel it getting bigger everyday. My thyroid is working normally though. I have more trouble swallowing and some other discomfort. 

Thank you so very much for all your support!!

 

Hugs

Jojo

I was just reading that thyroid nodules are extremely common and that 90 percent of them are benign. The article said that after a certain age about 50 percent of people develop one or more. So I’m looking at the stats as a good sign and chances are you’re in the 90 percent. Still, I’m sure you’re anxious about getting the biopsy done so you stop worrying about it. Let’s hope they schedule it soon so you can put this behind you as well!

Hi Andi,

You hit the nail on the head! I just want this done, so I know what is going on and can put this behind me! I do feel crappy, but sure that it is all tied together. I am sure it isn't too bad, whatever it is.

Thanks for caring enough to actually go and read about it. Very sweet of you.

Hugs

Jojo

I think feeling crappy is pretty much affected by your anxiety and wishing to get this over with and diagnosed. I really do think it's the 90 percent and benign but having it settled once and for all will be a huge relief, I'm sure.
