Re: Thyroid Cancer

Praying for you CC1... thankful that the accident was not more serious, and that it brought about knowledge of a more serious condition, that thankfully can be treated. Praying for the pain you are in now, for the upcoming surgery, and for a quick healing with no vocal cord loss!

Re: Thyroid Cancer

As I type this the night of 9-16-20 my surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. The diagnosis was malignant thyroid cancer so cancer that has spread to my lymph nodes. Surgery is complete removal of the thyroid and involved lymph nodes in the neck as well so a neck dissection.

Thank you everyone for the kind and encouraging words but most of all for your prayer. If you happen to think about it tomorrow pray that God guides the surgeons hands about 1:30 pm CST Thursday September 17, 2020!

Re: Thyroid Cancer

My surgery two days ago went well. I am in quite a bit of pain and can only whisper but am alive! The incision on my neck / throat is about four inches across and you don't realize how many nerve endings, etc are there until you are cut there then try to sit up in bed. My entire upper chest and neck area are sore and feels like everything is being pulled when I move.

Although technically I can eat anything I want apparently my throat and esophagus are swollen as even the softest of food gets stuck and I have to have a glass of water handy to wash food completely down my throat. The anesthesiologist told me that for this type surgery they have to use a larger than normal breathing tube that leaves the throat irritated for a few days.

My calcium levels dropped dramatically during surgery so I fear my parathyroid was damaged or removed during surgery. I will find out Tuesday at my follow up visit but they prescribed me a calcium pill and to take two Tums ultra strength 1000 pills four times a day. If that is the case I wlll have to take calcium daily along with the thyroid replacement medication the rest of my life.

Please pray for a quick recovery. I am miserable but glad to be alive and that my surgery went well.
