I faced my biggest fears after a biopsy of my thyroid revealed cancer. That word alone scares me to bits after mum, despite the differences in cancer. I’ve was a wreck for 2 weeks prior to surgery which involved taking out my thyroid gland completely. This cancer has 98% success following treatment. If anything it’s taught me always get checked out medically just in case!
Thanks to my mum for looking out for me.
It’s now been about 2 and half months since the surgery and still recovering. The specialist said it was a great outcome, no cancer found in several lymph nodes removed so didn’t require any other treatment. I will be on thyroid medication for the rest of my life so that will involve regular check ups.
Once again I just thank my mum who was looking after me from the beginning.
