I am from Cedar Rapids Iowa area. Where are you from. How are you doing this week? My shots at the beginning of the week made me sick as a dog. I'm finally feeling better today and able to eat, but my throat is sore.
I have just gotten my second shot of thyrogen. I felt crappy yesterday (about 1 hour after) and the same today: just fatigued with a headache. HOWEVER, this beats, hands down, how I have felt when taken off of my synthroid for the last scan. That was beyond horrible!
HELP... I had TT in December 2008 papilliary cancer. Enlarged lymph nodes in chest area found but determined not to be thyroid related. 1 1/2 years later doctor is telling me I need to take thyrogen injection to ensure all thryoid cells are gone.
What if I don't do the injections?
Funny that I have read of multiple people with enlarged lymph nodes in lung or chest area but apparently not related and later more enlarged lymph nodes found..
Doctor today adivsed me I had a little cancer and wasn't sure the TT was necessary... I don't think I like him.. a little cancer like no big deal, well I am dealing with MY life and for him to shrug it off makes me mad
