... that was the most painful thing I think I ever dealt with only to find out they didn't even get any cells to test on, and my ent doctor called me today and told me tat he was sending me to another doctor to have my thyroid removed completely because my thyroid is to swollen and to many nodules attached to it..I am freaking out I am already a hundred pounds over weight and can't get it off,I cry all the time, and I stay a wreck..Will any of these moods change once this painful thing gets out of my body???
Hello One nice thing is the surgery is not all that bad. I had a para thyroid and my thyroid removed and it was out patient. I have been on synthroid for years and they check it from time to time to make sure I am on the correct dose. I have anxiety and depression and was taking meds before the surgery and needed them after. However, everyone is different but you will need to be on synthroid. Are you on any meds now for anxiety or depression? Kitty
Hello. It does sound scary but I can tell you that the same thing happened to me. No cells came with the biopsy. They ran a ton of tests. I elected to have it removed as cancer was my thought. They removed it, transplanted the parathyroid and gave me an over the night watch. Went home next morning and was barely bothered by it. Virtually no pain, healed quickly. Sore throat for a week or so,
Now, was it worth it? Absolutely. Turned out I had microcell cancer. It was totally removed and all remains well. Takes a while to adjust the medication and you need to take calcium every day. That is it. I think the crying and stress will disappear and weight loss become easier once you adjust to the new medication. You may well laugh once you see how easy it is. When hypo the emotions are kinda all over. No matter what else you deal with, you will now have something cared for, treated, and will be fine. Let us know how you are. Relax a bit. Complications are rare. My doctor had done a few thousand of these over the years of his surgery practice. I had full faith in him. You are in control and it will turn out well. Karen
