    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    My first surgery went very well i felt decent after i was out of rexovery and went home the next day but my second surgery was much different. After the second surgery i felt much worse and was in the hospital for 3 days. It was very hard for them to control my calcium levels so there was poking in my arms about every half hour. My neck where they did my surgery was never actually in pain too often.

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

    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    The I131 pill was some what of a horrible experience. Being locked up in a room for 7 days with minimal contact with others was extremely difficult.

    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
