    thyroid problem
    cindy12345678 posted:
    Hi ladies,
    I know I haven't been on for awhile. I guess I have been trying to
    balance work, life etc. My onc sent me to an endocrinologist for
    my bones. I had some bone loss on a bone density scan. She also
    ran a lot of blood tests . She felt the nodule on my thyroid. and wanted
    me to have an ultrasound. the nodule has always been on my scans.
    they say I have one nodule and it is 1.4 cm. so now they want me
    to have a needle biopsy. One of the thyroid blood tests came back bad.
    So I am hoping that it is thyroid disease rather than a third cancer or
    a recurrence ( or st 4 ) Roberta is going in first on tues so Ican ride
    on "Pinkie" for her then maybe all of you can drop me off.
    I was wondering if anyone else has had any problems like this.

    Toot! Toot!! Pinkie will be there filled with members for both Roberta and for you, Cindy! We'll also bring baskets stuffed with good wishes and fun foods!

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    Sorry to hear about the thyroid issues wishing and hoping it is just the thyroid acting up and nothing else. I have an inlarged thyroid ever since chemo they are watching but doesn't sound the same as your issue. Boy if it isn't one thing it is another after chemo isn't it !? I just got back from another MRI of my low back to see if anything has changed there because of all the pain and falling more balance is getting worse also. More blood work also plus some for surgery on Tuesday. Thank you for all the good wishes and pinkie and being there for me I know it will be a good ride there and back Try not to worry to much I will there for you also as much as I can with all the good drugs in me from surgery lol. Hey I can't help you are going after my surgery but I am sure I will be funny lol. Have a great day angel hugs Roberta,

    Roberta,I a
    Sorry to hear you are still having problems with your back
    and your balance. I think I had some balance issues with
    the a/c. I hope they figure it out. I also hope there is no
    change on your MRI. I will be there on "Pinkie"
    You will be loads of fun after the surg drugs. I promise
    not to draw anything on your face if you fall asleep(my
    fingers are crossedLOL)Who will we have for cabana

    Cindy, I'm wishing for good news for you on the thyroid issue. And Roberta I'm sure you will be so relieved to have that darned port out. I love those surgery drugs too. I think it's so odd that you can be talking to someone in the surgery suite, and all of a sudden you're just gone, then wake up and it's over.
    One of my sisters just got her pathology report back and it is invasive ductal bc, triple negative, with a proliferation index of 35%. I'm so sad for her, she is a triplet and I'm wondering what this means for the other two triplets. I'm not sad because I think she can't beat this, she's a strong woman, I was just hoping that my sisters would be spared this disease.
    Roberta, I hope you can find some relief for your back. You certainly don't need this with surgery coming up. Thinking of you and Cindy and all the rest fighting this fight. Please save me a seat on Pinkie.
