Two days from surgery: a little anxiousPosted: March 19, 2011
I actually feel pretty comfortable with what the doctors have told me about what they are doing and what the possible complications for that are. If the worst thing is that I have a hoarse voice or need calcium supplements, that’s OK.
What worries me now is what they don’t know.
I’m sure everything will be fine if they just remove the thyroid and maybe a handful of questionable lymph nodes. But what if they get in there and see the bad stuff has spread somewhere else? They said thyroid cancer doesn’t spread much, so it’s a small risk.
Still, I’ll be a lot happier in about 52 hours, after the surgeon has said “We got it all.”
