When faced with papillary cancer, here is a great list of questions to ask the doctor.
http://www.thyca.org/questions.htm I am new at this also, didn't know where to turn and this has helped me get my head together for the TT pre-op with my doctor. Some questions will be able to be answered now and some at a later time as we journey down this 'sucky' path!!
thanks to all who participate in this wonderful community.
Good luck to all and take care.
