Anniversary-Thyroidectomy

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!

      1. I have fear of needlees always have since I was little so having a biospy done has been a true challenge 5 needlees and they won’t knock me out for those …was a real horror but you had to have surgery so I can’t even begin to know what you have been through but you are a cancer survivor.
