3 Days post op hemithyroidectomy

Postby IreneD » Mon Jan 07, 2013 2:01 pm

In the UK - still haven't changed to Spanish health care, my problem started before we need to do the necessary and I'm hoping no further operation will be required so that we can come back to Spain soon and take up residency etc. It would have been more convenient if this had happened a few months ago, but that's sod's law I suppose.

Am being beautifully cared for by my OH and family but looking forward to returning, hopefully in a month, all being well.

I had a thyroidectomy over 30 years ago !! I just take thyroid hormone supplements now - no probs :thumbup: Hope you're soon back in sunny Spain :D

(BTW - have you got a deeper voice now ?! People on the phone thought I was my OH.... :lol: )

Oh that's so nice! Many thanks for the messages, much appreciated. Chrissie, my voice disappeared till the next day but seems OK now (no respite for OH!) Keep everything crossed for me, I get results back in 2 weeks - had a nodule removed along with the right lobe as it had follicular neoplasm cells, discovered after a fine needle biopsy. The odds are in my favour though.

Really want to come back to Spain, 2012 was such a roller coaster and I was just beginning to feel settled, hopefully this is just yet another of life's blips :thumbup:

Thanks, Gerry :thumbup: I'd psyched myself up for bad news so have been an emotional heap :cry: Will start planning our return once I've got my head sorted.

So glad the news is all good :thumbup: Waiting for results can be terrifying can´t it? Brains go into overdrive with ´what if´s´ and it is always the bad what if´s never the good what if´s .
Hope the weather improves here by the time you return home.

Too true, oliveview, although I didn't realise just what a stiff upper lip I'd been keeping until I heard the good news :thumbup: Also, I'd done lots of Googling and of course it's mostly people who go on thyroid forums etc. who've had the cancer diagnosis, so that wasn't very sensible of me.

Will be coming back to Spain very soon, yes I hope the weather picks up, it was beautiful when we left just before Christmas :)
