    I'm so sorry you and your husband are having such a rough time. I just finished my first RA1 treatment and am 1 day out of isolation. I have my scan on Monday . My prayers go out to both of you. There are good people here and talking with others going through similar expierences really does help.

    Decision Point (the need for RA1 ablation): I had a wonderful Nuclear Medicine consult and the Doctor explained entire pathology report to me and also the need for the treatment.

    Oh No (I did not know I had cancer.): I had negative biopsies on the nodules prior to surgery.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): surgery went great, but unexpected cancer diagnosis after negative biopsies on nodules 2 mos prior to total thyroid removal. I had 2 nodules in left thyroid that were pushing on my throat. 1 nodule in right lobe that did not bother me. had microscopic papillary cancer in both lobes.
