I had a right thyroidectomy on Dec. 3rd and still have not received a biopsy report. I was told that a frozen section would be done and it was not. The doctor felt it looked clean and didn't need to be done. I have read that a frozen sections is not always accurate. But I am still concermed! Is this a normal procedure?
I also have complained to the ENT that for 2 months that I have had a cough and rough voice and not once has he even wanted to check my throat. Not, that I like something down my throat but here again I am concerned.
I am on my 4th round of antibitics and now using Asmanex inhaler and Spiriva. The ENT wants me to go to a Pulmonalgist for Bronchial spasms.
Am I just being very anxious about this whole matter? I just need some reassurance and I don't feel I am getting that from my ENT.
