Smoking Crystal Meth
I had (Thyroid Papillary Carcinoma) removed June 2013 along with removing my right Lymph node.  I've never smoked in my life before, but I fell into the wrong crowd about a month after my surgery whom gave me "Crystal Meth" to smoke. Stating that it helped them with their medical issues. I then realized that it made me feel better also. I have (Fibro Malaysia, PTSD,  chronic Gerd plus I've had two knee replacements , along with back problems). (I once was a serious Rock Climber from 1971- 1973). Then I fell 3 times so it ended my climbing. I haven't been able to walk or ride my bike for two years, plus my hands were always hurting with burning pain numbness etc. So I started doing "Crystal Meth"just a little here and there, which truly did help me to do the things I love doing. But now I have this terrible cough that won't go away. I've stopped smoking the Meth and I feel very ashamed that I even tried it.  i'm strictly taking my medications prescribed by my Dr's. I'm 60 years old. "I'm told I look 40 which is great". I'm a singer with a band, which I can still hit my high & low notes.
My question is this; Did I create a huge problem for any future cancer appearing? Thank you.

I'm going to bite.

I don't know how long you did it for, but no, you more than likely did not increase any chances of cancer returning. However, since you admitted you did a dangerous thing but have stopped, that's very good, and keep up the good work. Make sure you take your thyroid meds as directed, keep your levels where they need to be for you, and perhaps seek legal, better treatments in the future for your other problems.

Thank you for your encouragement! I really need to read your email just now, as I've been very scared of the harm I may have caused. How dumb am I? LOL I keep forgetting I'm 60 & not 30 anymore. Thanks again, Blessings, Gypsy
