    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I was diagnosed with 2 different types of thyroid cancer. One required surgery-thyroidectomy and neck disection. The other required surgery and treatment. All went well and all that is left is to take synthroid and do my bi-annual ultrasound and semi annual blood work.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
