Hi there - my notes and pm's are all  out of sync now but I have managed to track down your posts over the last few days when I was away.  I am sending you the biggest hug going ((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((hug)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I am so sorry to read about your diagnosis but what a great surgeon to take the lot out.  No second surgery - thats good news at least.  As for the rest well I can only reiterate what all the others have said - you will have good moments and bad ones but hang in there.  It's found, it's out, it's gone!  You're on the meds and on your way to rcovery now. We are all here to listen and help when we can. Anytime!
Talk soon?

Thank you for your support.I have  1 15 yo daughter who loves to surf . She just learned last summer while we were at Cocoa Beach.  She took a lesson at Ron Jon's surf shop. She rented a board and practiced. While practicing .a man from Hawaii saw her and assisted her. He taught her a lot. We are suppose to go back to Cocoa Beach the week of July 4th. That is why I waited until July 14 to have the surgery. The surgery schedule lady was going to work me in for June 30th. I hope this was the right decision.
I realize you are going through  a lot. I have been praying for you. I hope you are feeling great today.

I know waiting for pathology is hard, but remember that the chance of malignancy is super small, right?  And if it is, then we are ALL here for you, but it wont be, praying for you that it wont be! D

Hi Hel,
After my first thyroid surgery, I was horribly sick.  I mean, vomitting every 15 minutes for about two hours.  Finally the intravenous Gravol (an anti nausea drug) kicked it. I will mention it to the anesthetist on Wed for sure.  God, I'm a nervous wreck!  I'll be incapable of functioning in any way by the time Tues comes around!

I hope you bought vneck pyjamas!  You wont want anything near your incision for a while!  I'm doing okay - you know, preparing for surgery - ick!  Just going to try to enjoy the weekend with my sons and husband and family, and Wednesday will be here before I know it.  Next week at this time, I'll be at home (God willing!).  You should be home by Thursday I imagine.  I'll talk to you before then for sure!

Hi Helen,
Yes I had my chest xray.  Stupid thyroid!  I did not have to have an ECG because I had one prior to my first surgery, two months ago.  Stupid thyroid.  You doing okay? I'm a nervous mess again! Blech.  Despina

Hi - I will be staying in two nights, too.  Hopefully my calcium will be okay and I can go home on Friday.  God, I'm a nervous wreck!  Had my pre op today with my physician, and she had to ask to me relax twice!  We'll be just fine - right? RIGHT!

Hi Hel,
Doing okay...I guess. Starting to get really nervous about surgery again.  Yup, just 9 days to surgery for me, 8 for you.  Are you staying in the hospital at all or is your's an outpatient procedure?

Yes, weather improving all the time but like you said - chilly! :)
I am off to have my final check with Mr V the surgeon who did my pt and have a chat to him about a new Endo.  I do not want to go back to the original one - didn't like him and, considering he (nor the radiologist who did my scan prior to surgery), didn't think to check the other side of my thyroid for nodules, I have no faith in him. Those two were in H/Heath and I am now having all my stuff done in Eastbourne - we live kind of half way between the two towns. I saw the surgeon, (Mr V), after the original one delayed me twice.  I got fed up with it and so got a different referral.  I'm so glad I did becase I have been a lot happier with this new team at E'bourne. Will let you know how it goes x

I'm okay - thanks.  Its just tough, knowing that I have cancer (yuck) and another surgery ahead of me and then RAI and then a lifetime (and I pray its a good long lifetime) of testing.

But I'm okay.  

Glad that your surgery is back on the 3rd!  You'll do great! We'll do great! Talk soon! D

Thank you for the note, Helen.  I'm doing okay.  I cant say that this has been easy (at all) but I'm doing the best I can.  I hate my negative attitude, but maybe its a step I need to work through.  Hopefully the next step (acceptance?) leads to feeling a bit better.  Hope you are doing well and preparing your body for surgery (drinking tons of water and eating very healthily!).  You'll do great! Talk soon, Despina.
