My Thyroid Condition
My battle with follicular cancer of the thyroid gland
They are still checking me for cancer and so far so good but medical providers continue to behave like assholes. Meanwhile my latest diet is getting results.
I took my first holiday in ages recently and it showed me how much human beings need to take regular breaks to do fun things.
I have a couple more health issues to deal with but I'm doing good, better than you might expect really, thanks to God.
This entry covers the four months that have passed since I had surgery to remove my thyroid gland after being diagnosed with follicular cancer.
It is a week now since I had my second surgery which was a "completion thyroidectomy". They have now removed both sides of my thyroid gland.
I've never appreciated life but, after much soul searching, I have agreed to fight the cancer that is threatening to take it from me.
The test results on the lump in my right thyroid lobe have come back and I have follicular cancer of the thyroid gland.
It has been a week since I had my hemi-thyroidectomy. Here is a day by day running commentary on my recovery.
I have had half my thyroid gland removed. Now I have to wait for them to tell me if they will have to take the other half.
I have to present myself at my local hospital for an operation that will tell me if I do, or do not, have cancer of the thyroid gland soon.
