My final biopsies came back not as good as the prelims. I will be having the rest of my thyroid out tommorow due to cancer. They are thinking I might not have to have radiation and this might be the end of it! Have to put off getting my new babies another week!

Glad they caught it early, but sorry to hear about the 2nd surgery and additional delay in getting your new babies - I know how excited you are to get them! If there's anything I can do to help, just let me know! I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers

Really sorry that there were further complications Marna. I hope the surgery is fairly straight forward. You may be in hospital for a little longer this time to have the whole thyroid taken out? Hopefully you will be back home and on the mend soon, and looking forward to those new babys. Sam

So sorry to hear this news. I have a good friend who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last year and had the same surgery. Hers was very quick and easy. Here's hoping your surgery and recovery go as successfully as my friend's did!

Ty for all the comforting and positive thoughts! It has been a week today for the last surgery and I actually feel pretty good. I don't anticipate any problems and at least know what to expect. They think it was contained to the half of the thyroid already taken out so this is precautionary. I could have said no and taken the wait and see approach but this is the right choice for me. Don't have to be at the hospital till 6:00 tonite so am making a giant stew for my parents and the lady across the street who broke her hip. Love to cook and it is keeping me busy but the smell is killing me! Nothing to eat or drink!:Woo:

Marna, my thoughts and prayers and heart are with you. I think you made the right choice to be proactive--this is good. Better to be safe than sorry--I know my doctor clear back when they thought I had thyroid cancer told me if you have to get any cancer, this is the kind to get, as it is usually very slow growing and easy to get rid of. Still, "wait and see" wouldn't be the right choice for me either. You can take thyroid meds with no problems these days--get the cancer as far away from the rest of you as possible. God bless--will be praying for you tonight.
