Is there a way for you to go to another hospital for the biopsy? I know some doctors do the biopsy in their clinics but can also use their hospital. They don't like us using other hospitals but if it gets you in faster then I would go where I could get in.

My node is 9mm so 1mm under their worry zone. My endo doesn't feel my neck either and it was my sleep doctor of all people that felt it enlarged in September and he told me not to worry till December when I had my follow up. I am going to start insisting he does feel my neck from now on.

I would be upset like you as well if you miss a trip because of your days off. I haven't been to Disney since my thyroid cancer last year either so I understand the desire.

May you get good results and enjoy that trip after all the worry.

In one spot of good news: I talked to the boss and she said that, no matter how much time I may miss over this cancer thing, I can take time for disney - unpaid, but at least they'll let me take the time.

That is great that she is so understanding. Hopefully your surgery will go as simple as mine. I coud easily have gone back to work 2 days after as I had no side effects and my body healed very well. The surgeon I had would have let me too. lol

The week off for radiation was another story since you can't be near anyone and hypohell was hell too. I hope you don't have to take too much time off.

Thought you all might enjoy the article posted in the above link. It was in yesterday's Washington Post Health section and told the story of a young medical student getting a thyroid cancer diagnosis. I especially liked her discussion on how she handled it emotionally after being taught that it's the "best" cancer.

Thanks for sharing the article! 22 years later, and I still cringed as I read about her going through the full body scan. I remember how scared and alone I felt, while my husband sat in the hallway, not permitted to stay with me. There was a baby in the same scan room and that upset me too, wondering what was wrong with that little angel. Of course, being on no thyroid meds didn't help! Yes, it might be the " best " cancer, but it's still " cancer"!

squeegee - sorry you are dealing with this again. I am sure you will be glad to get the fna over and then its just waiting for the results, that is down right nerve wracking.
I am glad you like your new endo though. Its important that you both are on the same page and of course you have to be your own best advocate.

I used to live in Texas for 4 years. I miss it alot! We lived in the southwest dallas area.

Christine - thanks for sharing that article. I think there is one dr. who will have a lot more compassion for sure! Of course everyone here knows how I feel about the good cancer and what has happened to me.

Ang - thinking of you and my thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.

Well dh and I survived the trip. It was not the greatest. The weather was 10 degrees lower than normal.

On the plane ride down a woman started screaming that he rhusband had a heart attack. The flight attendants were giving him oxygen. They never told us what was happening,but finally said we are continting to Orlando. The guy walked off the plane and sat in a wheelchair with the emts.

I also got hit in the head with a snowball napkin from a wonderful dad at the next table. I actually thought his kid did it but I couldnt turn my neck and see because of the good cancer, lol, I was waiting for the kid to come and apologize. Dh saw the whole thing and said the dad did it and the kid ducked The dad came over to apologize and bought us our dinner.

The food quality has gone down for sure. I am gong to do a dining report. Dh steak at the Yachtsman was terrible. So was his chicken at Hollywood Brown Derby.

Singing mom - we loved the renovated room at the Swan, except for the strange glass table.

I love Levar Burton! The MVMCP was ok. I also love listening to the Joyful gospel musical presentation at Epcot. Dh doesnt care for that music, but I do. The Osborne Lights ere great as usual and not crowded the night we went. We also had the front row for the frozen sing along because I sat in the wheelchair.

I still need to get the bone scan and mammo I know they are only looking for bone density but my scoliosis is getting really bad. I know my mom had the same problem, so I am thinking its hereditery. Lots of the bad genes in my family.

Thinking of you all. Hope everyone is doing ok.

Have a blessed holiday season everyone.

That was an interesting article. I can tell you though that not only thyroid cancer is minimalized by doctors so is cervical and uterine. Same stigma of if you have to get one this is the one to have. The ironic thing is I was told that with thyroid cancer and then after was told we need to tell you that yours was an aggressive variant comparable to breast cancer but don't worry it was contained and we got it out of there. Don't worry, yeah right. lol
