I am 40 year old mom of 3 who are my life and married to an amazing person. I have just underwent my 2nd thyroid surgery for thyroid cancer. The first was 1 week ago and the nodule came out benign after frozen section on table. 5 days later papillary cancer dx. 2nd
[More] surgery done 11/14. Right now I am still in the numb and scared phase.
1/15/09 had 110mcl of RAI. 24 hours after the treatment I had horrible swollen/painful salivary glands. Started 137 Synthroid. Now it is 2 weeks past treatment and I still have no taste and I was just diagnosed with a double ear infection and sinus infection. Ugh.
Hi, just sitting her wondering how you are feeling? Improving daily I hope.
My voice seems a tad bit stronger today...just a bit. How is yours doing?
I have been taking Tussin DM a few times (probably not supposed to but oh well) it seems to helps loosen the phlegm.
This a link to a site to help with voice http://vocalcoach.blogspot.com/2005/10/clear-your-throat-right-way-or-else.html,
haven't decided if it will help or not.
How is the family holding out???
Take good care.
