Inconclusive



I woke up today with an earache.  I am unsure whether this is related to the rash/swelling radiating to my ear.  I have a follow up appt. Tues. My surgeon called.  The results were inconclusive and they would like me to come back at 2 today.  I called and cancelled their appt.  as I still have faint hives and swelling. I was told that after the procedure the ultrasound tech. came out and shared that she doubted a good sample was obtained from my left side as I have a very unusual thyroid.  She also shared that she had warned me ahead of time that in 1/15 cases results are inconclusive.

allergic reactions



I called the answering service because my throat was covered in hives.  The surgeon suggested I go to the emergency room. I went to urgent care as that is very close to my home.  I was given a shot, benedryl and sent home with prednisone.

painful



I had an FNA done b/c I have multiple nodules.  The Dr. told me that I had a very odd shaped thyroid.  I was warned that there was a 1/15 % chance that results would be inconclusive. The procedure was more painful than I expected.  Although I told them in advance that in the past it has taken excessive doses of novicaine to numb me and the ultrasound technician assured me that they would make sure I was numb before I started, that was not the case.  The 1st (left side) seemed much less painful.  The second side, I was given to shots and not enough time for it to kick in.  It was very uncomfortable.
