Just a quick note to say hi! Hello, I tried to search for Thyroid Transplant and your blog was the only thing that came up. Pitty more people with better resources didn't have the same idea. 1 year ago I was dianosed with THyroid cancer and had a total thyroidectomy. Since then my body has paid the price! I want my thyroid back! Now I also have metabolic syndrome and occasional high blood pressure which causes migraines. I would have rather been eat up with the cancer and not known! Please let me know if you have heard of ANYONE doing this procedure (even experimental)!! thanks jt_x_press_t***@****
