    Right now cancer is on my mind as I'm with my fiancé driving to MD Anderson in Houston for my yearly follow up visit. I'm really nervous this time around, more so then any of my other follow ups. The research I've done has said that micro-papillary likes to resurface around the 3 yr mark. This is my 3 year mark!

    Radiation (Internal radiation): I had ingested radiation 105.9 millikaries & was quarantined for 4 days. Once I was in the quarantined room no one was to come in! Had to take 4 showers a day and strip my bed with every shower; my skin had to be scrubbed vigorously with every shower and the water had to remain running 10 minutes after I was done to clear the radiation out of the pipes. The toilet had to be flushed 3 times after using. What I recall as the worst part is the feeling of my flesh being burned from the inside out. The smell of burning flesh was nauseating! I lost my sense of taste for about 3 months. The radiation did cause some damage to my film over my eyes so now I just have to put sustain drops in my eyes; to avoid further scratching of the surface of the eye. Durning my surgery the parathyroid glands were irritated which threw me into hypocalcemia so now I have to take a calcium & vitamin D supplement. Unfortunately I still don't feel as if I have gained back my muscle strength I had prior to my thyroidectomy & radiation treatment.
