Okay, so today is day 9 post TT for papillary carcinoma and i'm not feeling too bad, but not feeling all that energetic either. I'm not really sure how I should be feeling besides being depressed. But I did go to my Endo yesterday and she said she wants me to come back in to get blood draw in 6 weeks to check levels and I will be having RAI in probably 2 months. I go see the surgeon tomorrow just to check my incision but can anyone tell me why is it such a long wait to get treatment after surgery? Is the 2 months standard wait time after cancer diagnosis? Endo told me that my nodules were papillary cancer with follicular variants-can anyone explain what that means please and should I be more terrified than I am already? I just don't understand any of this. Since 1 of my lymph nodes tested positive for cancer-does that mean the rest have cancer-I mean how do we get rid of this if it can pop up somewhere esle? The way my Dr first explained it-surgery would be the cure? I am not sure if I have any thyroid tissue left but my surgeon did tell me that I still have all 4 of my parathyroid glands.
Can anyone think of any questions I should be asking the surgeon tomorrow? I am so nervous and I just don't wanna miss anything-any input you have is greatly appreciated! Ok I will breathe now-thanks for listening
