Nine years ago today I had my thyroidectomy. It was confirmed I had Papillary cancer and it had spread into the lymph nodes.

I had a lot of swelling and a lot of pain after this surgery. It was a cake walk next to the RAI treatment though. That was absolute hell.

But I am still here. I am a survivor! I encourage every single person to have their doctor feel them up!! 😂 Your neck that is! Check that neck!!

Many blessings!
