hi, i just had a thyroidectomy 2 weeks ago and the pathology report came back saying that there are microscopic cancers in my lymph nodes. next week i'm supposed to discuss my options. my doctor mentions my prognosis is good and positive, based on my age and the size of the cancer in thyroid being small, she says i'm at stage 1. now, i'm just worried if i do radioactive iodine therapy, there will be side effects such as damage to the ovaries. i'm still of child-bearing age and never had children before. i'm just confused because my family doctor and another endocrinologist both said i can still have a family and not to worry, while my endocrinologist mentions there might be a risk. i'm just wondering if anyone had any problems getting pregnant after radioactive iodine therapy. she says microscopic cancer is harmless and i shouldn't be worried about it right now and that there's a 1% chance it might come back. maybe it won't come back at all and will it be safe to wait years later to do radioactive iodine therapy after i have kids? i'm confused, any advice appreciated!
