Big (good) newsPosted: October 13, 2011
Had my 6-month ultrasound last week and got the results of my bloodwork today….
Nothing on the ultrasound. Thyroglobulin level at 0. I don’t know exactly what that means, other than that’s exactly what Dr. Q said he wanted to see.
I’m not naive enough to use the words “cured” or “cancer free,” but it is good news. Now I have about seven more months to wait till I do another whole body scan. I believe there are a few hoops to jump through for that, but I’m not going to worry about it for a while.
Dr. Q said my thyroid levels are right on the money, so no need to change my medication. I have felt absolutely normal for quite a while. Sometimes I even forget what I went through. It really wasn’t that hard, which I point out only to be encouraging to those just starting on their treatment, not to dismiss those who weren’t as lucky as me to have such a flawless treatment.
Hopefully this blog will stay boring forever!
