  • My Thyroid cancer adventure continues

    I have waited all month for my new support group to meet, and it was a lot of fun.
    We just sat around and talked about our experiences, where the better hospitals were,
    and what surgeons in the area were the better ones.

    I came home with questions I wanted to ask my enocronologist and emailed him that evening.


    He called me the next morning at 7:15 am to personally talk to me!
    I was SO impressed, most specialist just don't take the time.
    He did tell me my cancer antigen test was so that they would know I wan't
    terminal. Nice to know I passed that one.

    I am stressing over my visit with the surgeon on Tues. I sure hope he is not just
    the "I just do surgery type" some of them are.

    What I want is someone that knows what this kind of cancer is, (most doctors never even see it)
    I want some more diagnostics before he goes in there.
    So many people I have read on the cancer board I frequent these days, that have
    this type, have surgery after surgery after surgery.
    I want one. Just one. And I want to hear that my biopsey is WRONG.
    I don't care if it just goes up one step to a lesser kind, two steps, or Poof the whole thing ends up benign.
    I can dream can't I ?
    Good thing I am super busy with spring dogs, and once my day stars, don't have much time
    to dell on it. More after Tues.
