Large nodule disappears

Went and had another ultrasound done today didnt get the official report but I knew there was something not right when tech asked was I sure the nodule wasnt cystic. She couldnt tell me since she not a radiologist but my so call huge right nodule not seen. she said she saw 2 tiny nodules but thats it. How does a nodule that took up most of
the right side of my thyriod disappear or become two small ones. I am so confused and so angry that i have been dealing with this since Oct. I guess when isee the surgeon this thurs he can explain it to me or maybe he will be just as confused as me.

Sounds like a technical issue or a difference of opinion on if the nodule replaces the lobe, is one nodule vs two (or more), etc...May be best to see an endocrinologist who does his/her own ultrasound to determine what is going on.

Could it be the cystic part drained and that is why there are two small nodules left? I dont know how small nodules are until i see surgeon on thurs. I looked back on my old ultrasound and it said hetergenous which means cystic and solid right? i know I must sound alittle nutty but it just seems to be changing even my tsh is 1.20 which is a good thing. Just dont understand if i am not right about hetergenous what happened to my large nodule.
