RAI Results

I met with the endocrinologist today. He is phenomenal! If you ever need an endo - see Dr. Grua in SLC.

Anyway - he says I made his day because I'm doing so well. That comment made MY day! In short - he prescribed me a combination of thyroid medications, took some blood and sent me on my way! I'll see him again in March to make sure the dosage is correct and to have more labs. He says he will probably want to ultrasound my neck. It will also give him an indication about whether or not I absolutely need the radioactive iodine (RAI) - because my cancer was small and I'm a borderline case

So, it was great news! I'm so happy to move forward and stop playing the waiting game. Waiting for lab results. Waiting to feel better. Waiting for appts, etc. It's time to move on and put this thyroid cancer incident behind me. I will ALWAYS have my checkups and watch for anything strange - and I may have the RAI later this year - but for now - I'm moving on!

Thanks to all of you who have asked how I'm doing!!
