I've posted recently about tall cell diagnosis from pathology report and Tg of 3.7 measured almost 3 months after RAI. Since my last appointment with endo I've been worrying so much about my situation. After surgery and RAI I felt like I owned what I knew and was feeling good. The wind was definitely knocked out of my sails.
The last 3 weeks have been tough. The WBS showed uptake in front of neck. No uptake on sides of neck or anywhere else in body (a little in my salivary glands). Also before surgey (7 months ago) a CT scan with contrast showed 2- 2mm nodules in my lower right lung, but they didn't think they were related. Just told me they will keep an eye on them. The surgeon said the CT showed no evidence of chest disease in light of what they saw. They didn't light up on WBS.
I had 6 of 19 lymph nodes positive, 5 on right neck, 1 on left neck and 0 in anterior neck.
After my last appointment I started worrying a lot. My throat started to feel scratchy and now my chest feels heavy and consticted. I don't notice it all the time, just when I stop and have time to think about it.
I worry that I have lung mets. What if I have cancer that is non-avid in my lungs? Given I just stared to notice after my appointment I think that maybe I am making my chest tight with all the stress and worries.
I am back to being scared to death. Any words of wisdom??????
