they had found a large growth on my thyroid in October, they did the biopsy and the cells looked strange, they went in the first week of November and removed all but the 4 corners of my thyroid. The growth they had been seeing was not cancer after all BUT they did find one hiding behind the other one it was only 5 mm in size and by removal it took care of it to no need for radiation -------
but since then my UC has seemed to stay in check, only going to bathroom my normal couple times in the morning and a few in the evening
(this week has been off due to stress) but still for the most part staying in check.
Anyone ever heard of a connection between the thyroid removal and ulcerative colitis
