OMG! Best news I've ever received!!!


Today I received some news that literally had me WEEPING with relief and joy in the parking lot. I had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer about two weeks ago after finding a lump in my throat and experiencing some of the worst fatigue I have ever had for a few months. I went in for some pretty intense biopsies last week to isolate the TYPE of cancer inhabiting my thyroid. I was so scared it was going to come back as an aggressive form, due to the rapid growth of the tumor. I couldn't get my GP's worthless nurse to call me back or get me in for an appt, so I drove down to the lab that ran the test to pick up a copy. Well, it turns out they had it wrong with the first diagnosis and I don't have ANY cancer. I have an atypical nodular structure, but it's not malignant. I have never seen a more beautiful word than "benign". I'll still probably end up having to have surgery and/or the radioactive treatments, BUT, I won't have to be terrified every waking minute that it's metastatic. Now there's more bloodwork to isolate what's causing all of this (probably Hashimoto's) weirdness. I just want to thank ALL of you for being so supportive. I do believe in the power of positive thought/prayer/whatever it might be, and know that it helps. :-)

The only thing to fear is fear itself. Here's to you... health, happiness, and horniness for life.

That's wonderful news! I had a similar deal with my lungs - they found shadows on an xray and after a bunch of scans and biopsies it was diagnosed as a rare lung disease that is NOT cancer (altho it could be some day but it would be unusual and right now it is totally in remission). I know exactly how you feel and I am so happy for you! Yay!

Excellent news! Very happy it isn't a worse ordeal! You'll make it through!

Just remember my three pieces of advice

Eat healthy food and take your vitamins!
If you're not eating enough and start to lose weight the munchies may help!
Go outside and get sun during your treatment. Spring/Summer treatments provide the most success!
