Can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I tend to hide myself away when I'm not up to being social, so the blogging goes into hibernation for a while. Anyway, the good news is at the moment, I'm officially cancer free.
Of the 56 lymph nodes removed, only 1 had cancer. My thyroglobulin which had been 10 then 12 is now 0.5. Because of the test sensitivity, this is basically 0. I've increased my thyroxine, and need to have more TFTs in July, then Tg in August and November.
Both the surgeon and physician seemed pleased with the results. After the last 2 years, I can't get over the feelings of relief. The photo is 2 months post op.
Thank you to everyone who's read my blog and posted supportive messages, and those who've read and not posted but shared postivie thoughts with me.
I've been quilting for around 10 years. I'm gradually becoming more confident in my abilities and had some of my work in my quilt group's summer exhibition. I'm fighting a losing battle to only buy fabric for specific projects and to finish some of my UFOs I want to get under 2:20 for a half marathon, sub 60 10K and run my first marathon. I've also recently been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
