I know I am not alone and yet no matter how surrounded one might be, I know some decisons are mine alone to make and we all have our waters to navigate to get the job done. I will always be greatful for this bird taking time to help me. Many say we need to always listen to the universe, well nature also has a way of teaching us a better way too.
The surgeon gave me some homework to do regarding additional treatment. Seems there is some uncertianity if the standard Radioactive Iodine treatment would be the right course for me. Seems that being over 45 years old and this treatment may actually increase my chances of additional cancer/s. The Ironic thing is in order to actually find out if it has spread, they need to kill (the radioactive iodine treatment/s) the remaining fragments of thyroid tissue in order for any other possible cancer to show up in the scan. Some of the more comon places for it to show up might be lungs, kidneys & bones. If the scan comes out clean, Then I am left with the realitiy that the radioactive Iodine will most likely create an additional cancer down the road. When I asked if there was anything I could do to be proactive to reduce this occurance, the answer was simply No.
By no means is this a pitty party, it is just me sharing this enlightenment on this subject. We are often told that saying No to things is harder than saying yes, that remains to be seen.
