    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The doc did a really good job on my neck. Doctor ended up taking my whole thyroid because i had 2 nodules on left side and dark shadows on other. Doctor had to leave some of the tumor raped around my nerve because she didnt want to make the dicision to take it because it would leave me horse voiced forever. So now I have to take a radiation drink or pill not sure which one yet.
