In October 2011, after my TT surgery on May 5, 2011 and my radiation in July my results were:
(October 28, 2011)
thyroglobulin quantative - 1.02
Anti Thyroglobulin Ab 1.78
HTSH Ultra third generation - 9,513 high
And today February 11.2012, my results before I go to the second WBS are:
Tsh 3th Generation in January 2012 was 0.036 low
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone-41,868
Quantative Thytoglobulin: 1.55
Anti Thyroglubin Ab 1.72
Anyone have any idea of what it means, because for me there is increase in Thyroglobulin, and I guess it should go down since July are only 6 months after radiation. On Monday I have the WBS because even 4 lymph nodes that I have now had 7. And according to my doctor of Nuclear Medicine cancer nodules are small but the cancer is aggressive. I just hope to have early diagnosis and begin treatment if necessary. I remain positive and I will continue taking the battle to be free of this disease.
The thyroglobulin appears to be higher however the TSH is much higher now than it was last time, therefore an a relative sense, the thyroglobulin is actually lower when accounting for the TSH difference. It is important also to have a good neck ultrasound as part of this evaluation.
Dr. Lupo thanks for your help. On the 14th of February, my doctor just confirmed that I had cancer of thyroid, and I have none, radiation delete it completely, is great news for me and my family. Now we just keep an eye every 6 months, the lymph nodes that I have not grow or change
