Not good news really, I'm getting really anxious about her condition.Best way I will try and combat it will be to run it off!
She saw the surgeon yesterday and he showed us the CT scan image, what we were first told that the inflamed thyroid nodule the size of a satsuma, well we fell through the floor! Looking at the image it's about the size of a grapefruit! A goiter, probably growing unknown for many years, and instead of it growing out from the neck has grown downwards, so I leave it to your imaginations how it has to come out! I don't want to go into the explanation of this, but I think you may have an idea, so it makes the removal harder and she has to have it done in the coming months as it pushing over the windpipe and told it would start to affect her breathing. Luckily she is fit and will keep up her walking & dancercise for now, remains upbeat and tough, as she said to me, oh well! I've already had one grapefruit removed on a hysterectomy so may as well make it a pair!😂
It's probably a benign tumour, just so strange how some people keep getting these things growing inside. Anyway the prognosis looks good, just will take time for her to recover after😖
Peeps! Keep an eye on your neck area where the thyroid gland is, and feel for any swelling there, if so, then see your doc sharpish!
