    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was pregnant with my daughter when I found out that I had thyroid cancer.

    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had my thyroidectomy 6 weeks after the birth of my daughter. I'd had a c-section, so having 2 surgeries so close together was very difficult. So were the sleepless nights!

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