I just got home today from the hospital after having my thyroid, my left parathyroids, as well as numerous lymph nodes removed because of papillary thyroid cancer. I was diagnosed officially on July 2.
Back in May, my husband and I elected to do an advanced body scan (EBT). I was doing it to support him, he wanted to check the calcium on his carotid arteries. We did not expect to find anything on me, but there it was, two suspicious nodules on my left thyroid.
At first all of this scared me, but surgeons have been so wonderful and have taken great care of me physically and mentally. Now as I look at a seven inch incision across my neck, I wonder if I will ever look normal again, but then I am reminded of all the brave women who have walked before me and know we can ALL fight like girls!!!!
