Great News!!

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.
