Procedure or Surgery Associated with Thyroid Cancer. Posted on September 8, 2012 View this journey (2 Experiences)

Thyroid cancer found unexpectedly during surgery for parathyroid adenoma. Returned two days later for more surgery. Surgeon removed half my thyroid, not all of it. It all happened so fast, no time to research it and learn about what I had. Saw 5 doctors, and they were evenly split (one was on the fence) about whether entire thyroid should have been removed or not. Not sure if I did the right thing.

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