Update on the Thyroid Cancer

Well, I've met with the surgeon's assistant on Monday. I left there with more questions than answers. The short story is that they tested 4 lymph nodes. One came back positive for cancer. I'm not sure where I go from here. There is an appointment scheduled on Sept. 16th. Then I'll be sent to someone else for the radioactive iodine pill.

The phrase that they keep telling me is "This is the best kind of cancer to have." I'd like to hear them say that when they are on this side of the table. It just seems like the "medical feet" are dragging.

Everything is healing the way it should. I'm pretty much just waiting on answers.
