why i am writing this blog
i was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last month. what a shocker!! i have had thyroid disease for several years. i have thyroid nodules, and have had three biopsies. the third one was the charm-haha. they found the cancer and now have to remove all my thyroid, lymph nodes and probably lymph nodes in my neck. my surgery is scheduled for may 19th.this has been difficult for me to deal with, as well as for my family. i am trying my best to be positive and keep my sanity and my sense of humor intact. i will let you know about how my surgery goes, my recovery, and post treatment issues.please let me know if you are dealing with similar issues, and i will try to share information as i get it.
