This entry covers the four months that have passed since I had surgery to remove my thyroid gland after being diagnosed with follicular cancer. I've included pictures of the scar that were taken one month and four months after surgery.
It's a week since I had my second surgery, a "completion thyroidectomy", to remove the rest of my thyroid gland. The removal of half my thyroid gland three weeks ago was not as painful as I expected it would be but I can't say the same this time.
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 my thyroid operation. They took half and now I have to wait for them to tell me if they will have to take the other half. This entry includes the facts as well as some ranting here and there about the way the medical professions treat us.
