      If you are going to fight Cancer, thyroid is one of the ones that is generally survivable. I had it as a teenager in the mid 70's and again 30 years later. I would be more than happy to help you with anything. My biggest suggestion would be to make sure you suck on sour candies during iodine treatment and make sure you have lots of laughter. You made the right start by looking for friends who have been through it. Please contact all of us for help and questions! You have entered to alternate universe of the big C with has its fears and its strengths. Please stay strong, Tracy

      Hi hikinggirl,

      I was diagnosed with Medullary Thyroid cancer probably around the same time as you. I am always here to have a chat, scream, yell at :-)

      Your posting is old, but if you would still like an on-line friend to talk things through, please reach out. I had a thyroidecto my 6 months ago and am doing quite well and would be happy to share.
