    Procedure or Surgery

    I receive a sandistatin shot every 28 days to try to keep the cancer at bay. I am scared. I just had surgery to have my thyroid removed since they, the doctors thought their was cancer there. I had surgery to have it removed and no cancer! Yeah! I am scared that the other tumors I have are not operable. I am a fighter, but scared at times.
