I go this Friday (3 days away).  Thanks for asking.  I can feel the area in my neck now, where I couldn't before.  No pain or discomfort though.  I guess it was a good thing I had to wait nearly 2 months to get in.

I was tested for Graves and it came back positive.  I meet with my Endo about this on Friday.

A thyroid adenoma is a benign tumor of the thyroid gland.
A thyroid adenoma may be clinically silent, or it may be a functional tumor, producing excessive thyroid hormone. In this case, it may result in symptomatic hyperthyroidism, and may be referred to as a toxic thyroid adenoma.
You are suffering with hyperthyroidism and need to be on an anti-thyroid medication.
Was your Graves Disease diagnosed by testing your antibodies?
Good luck with yr appointment.
