As I mentioned in earlier posts, I had 2 Thyrogen shots to prepare my thyroid for the radioactive iodine which is meant to kill off any remaining thyroid after the surgery. Here is what I didn't know. 

Each one of those shots cost $6,000+. Yep, I got the bill last week...

In preparation for my visit to the endocrinologist this month, I had blood tests done for my thyroid and calcium. Based on still running out of steam by the afternoon, I knew my numbers were off but I didn't expect this.

My endo said more than one time, your thyroid num...

I am now 3 months into my recovery after my thyroid surgery. It has been a long 3 months with lots of visits to the doctor's office, my chiropractor, functional medicine doctor and getting blood tests. I have had time to rest and heal. I am so thankful for that. Here i...

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I lost my voice from August 1 through September 10 due to vocal chord stretching or damaging during the pretty delicate surgery I had to remove the right lobe of my thyroid that had the cancer. The first Videostroboscopy exam showed t...

Today, I am a free woman. Free to go where ever I wanted. Yipeee!!!

Ahh...the last day of my quarantine is here. 

Today, I still have a sore throat and one added discovery. My muscles are sore. I'm not sure if that is from the longer walk yesterday or from the treatment aftereffects.

My energy levels are good and I got to go for a walk a...

Today, things were improving. My tongue, throat and neck did not feel as thick as they had over the past 5 days. However, I did have a sore throat. My energy level was fairly good so I took a longer walk today. It was so nice to be outside even if it was just for a wal...

On the 5th day of RAI treatment, I am experiencing a sore throat. Something I was told I might experience on Day 1. My energy level and appetite was good but my throat and tongue felt thick and icky. My neck also felt very thick.

At Day 5, I am getting antsy to get out....

Energy level is still good. Praise God! Today, I am experiencing a lot of gas and very loose icky looking green poop. Sorry to be so graphic but this might just happen to someone else and I found out it is nothing to be alarmed about. I think it is just the bodies way...

By day 3 of my RAI treatment, I was experiencing major gassy stomach. Hmm...not surprising since I had taken a roadiactive pill just a couple of days ago. I also started having a bit of a loose stool. Also, not surprising.

Let me interject that these are my symptoms. Ou...
