2nd opinion for thyroid cancer

Hello, has anyone gone to cancer treatment centers of America for a 2nd opinion? After a diagnosis of papillary thyroid cancer I am waiting to see my endocrinologist for follow up a month after surgery. Waiting is the worst. 

How do yall cope with the emotional side of cancer? I am a giant wreck  emotionally.

I think it is all emotional torment. I am moving from Moffitt to md Anderson. My dr said if I was his wife that is where I would be. Besides I was told by my nurse st Moffitt that my Endo is too boomed to talk to me! And all I wanted was some advice about my treatment! I was diagnosed with TCV which is a rare cancer cell that does not respond well to radioactive iodine. And wanted to discuss other options. Just scared and afraid. No comfort at Moffitt.

Just reaching out for support and information from anyone who has been diagnosed/treated for folliculary thyroid cancer, as mine is the Hurthle Cell variant. It is more aggressive and behaves differently and I am looking for surgeon recommendations and any person(s) who has been through this to see how they are doing now.
