Hi J,
I love you picture btw - you are absolutely gorgeous!  I'm okay.  Still suffering with low calcium.  This REALLY *****.  Its like one thing on top of the next and I'm tired of it all.  Thank you for thinking of me.  Hope you are doing well.  No news yet on the latest tests? Thinking of you, too.  D

Hee hee..glad to know someone else admires The Man! Yes, it's very intriguing the coeliac + thyroid connection. I got diagnosed about 12 years ago. I wasn't sure what the heck was wrong with me, tried the gluten free diet, I learned that Irish heritage could play a part in it. (bah, bloody ancestors! LOL!) Only years later I made the connection. I've been off gluten 100% these past 5 weeks to prove a point.Not easy and totally boring, I crave a thick wholegrain salad sandwich at the moment, but the old bod says,  no no no!
Not too cold here in overcast Melbourne. First time in history that we've not had a night under 10c...normally it's around -1c where I live. Unheard of for June!  Global warming at its best...(now don't get me started on that subject! Hee hee!) BTW I like wine too! ;-)

Hi J.  Yes, the amount of knowledge AR has is amazing.  I'll be emailing him tomorrow with my calcium / phosphate and PTH bloodwork!  I am okay other than the calcium ****!  My incision looks amazing actually.  It looks better than the first one (this surgeon cut off the first one and gave me a neck tuck, so to speak!).  When do you get the scan results - and what were they for anyway? Talk soon! D

Hi Jacqui, thankyou for all your kind messages and well wishes recently! I'm sorry to hear about you missing your endo appointment, i hope they reschedule it for you soon! I'm so glad to be home, still feeling a bit rough but mostly because of the chest infection and it's hard to cough because my neck muscles just aren't strong enough! Thankyou again, sending hugs and lots of love x x x

hi i read that selenium can help with the conversion of t4 to t3 apparently it works better with zinc and iodine so i made sure these were in the mineral supplements you know whats its like in the uk they wont even test you for t3 let alone give you anything so i was hoping that it will help me feel better in general

i'm reading the complete thyroid book, it's really interesting! do you ever get copies of path reports etc? i never have and would love to know what they say, we don't really get easy access to them over here like they do in the US do we. how are you feeling now after your ultrasound? i feel better now think i had PMT last week and things going a bit pear shaped didn't help! had my pre assessment, went well, they are gunna remove 90% of my thyroid. so hopefully it'll come back benign and they won't have to remove the rest! hope you're ok x x x

yes, that other poster was way out of line and it struck everybody big time and caused things to overflow into other posts so come on back and post ... I have gotten MANY PM"s that people are concerned you are ok .. so maybe just a quick hello, but kind of taking it easy .. they are concerned and thx for writing me back..this is NOT the norm on this community at all . first time I have ever seen any of this happen in 2yrs .. just bad timing is what I think.

i know, i'm looking forward to getting to the beach, although will have to remember to cover up my scar once i've had my op :)
i love this time of year and this year is made even better by the fact that i'm getting married in september, got a beautifull dress, any ideas on how to hide the scar? (i'm not that worried though, will just be part of who i am! :) then going to florida on honeymoon, getting excited but always got that dread in the back of my mind that i gotta have this op and then wait for the result, (biting nails!) gotta put it to the back of my mind though or these wedding plans are never gunna get sorted! hope you are ok x x x

hope your feeling better now and more positive. as for me since i joined this site i feel more confused than before its made me finally admit to myself that i too had cancer i have realised that i buried it i didnt feel like some one who had a cancer diagnisis my specialist spoke to me like he was telling me i had cold and now its gone so forget it.  i havent questioned anything i now realise that there are lots of things i dont know  so maybe i will be putting my own question out on the forum.
good luck with doing it all yourself this week hope you and hubby have stopped worrying too much

You are in my thoughts and prayers. I know the Lord is able to bring us out of all afflictions.  I have experienced Him doing that and He is still doing it for me.  It is so wonderful to meet another Christian.  So many good people on this forum.  They are wonderful with their prayers and helpful information.    linda

Hi,

I don't think think the TSH numbers are different in the US and UK, but I am not the numbers expert.  That could be a question you post on the board.  I think they're the same, though.  I'm sorry you're having such a rough time.
