Ive been hovering on the site and came across your situation. My best friend had breast cancer and then 3 years later she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Her breast cancer was caught quite early so her treatment was lumpectomy and radiation. With the thyroid they removed it and that was it...no treatment at all. I will say a prayer for you that you will be as lucky.
Sorry I have not been posting more often but I do lurk just to make sure all of my friends are doing good. I have been going thru alot of testing for pain and was diagnosed with arthritis in my back and hip on one side and tendenitis and bursitis in my elbow and shoulder on the other side.
Take care and keep us posted
I am sorry I didnt respond sooner....I was in S. Carolina visiting my sister and wasnt able to check the board. When will you get the Lobe removed ? Any idea ? Do you know if you will be getting the radioactive pill along with the surgery ? Please keep us posted so we can have Joyce fuel up the PCE.....!! We want to be there with you !!
Love you lots my friend ! and lots of hugs........
It has been a long time since I posted here, but I remember that our breast cancers were very similar.
I too had papillary thyroid cancer. I got it back in 2006 and had it removed along with the radioactive iodine pill.
Unfortunately, less than a year later, I found a recurrence of my 2003 breast cancer.
But, it was much smaller than the first one and confined to the breast. So, I had my right breast removed. I am currently undergoing reconstruction and I get herceptin every 3 weeks. I am doing well!
I will be hoping for good results for you as well!
