I'm home! Got the word by 8:30 this morning. Yea! The guy came to take measurements, with the key one being 1 meter from my neck, at 7mmr or less. First one was 8.3. Bummer. He sends me in to pee, just in case that helps, and voila! It went down to 6.7, just by emptying my bladder. The key is drink, drink, drink!
The room experience was a thousand times better than after surgery. I had a quiet room far from the nurse's station, door shut, own thermostat and even a fridge. I brought in some of my own bottled water and fruit, and drank like a fish yesterday. I was able to sleep till about
5:45 am, another improvement from surgery.
A few precautions for a while, just can't have prolonged contact with others. I can go shopping, out to eat, etc, jut can't sit too close to anyone especially PG woman or young kids or I could pose risk to their thyroid. Not too terrible.
Best part is I am back on a regular diet, forget the low iodine diet, and can start thyroid meds on Sunday. Back for a body scan on Thursday and then I can reclaim my life (until the next scan in 6 months).
All a big hassle, but nothing compared to the warrior badge of being a BC survivor!
Happy weekend everyone!
