Well had total thyroidectomy and lateral neck dissection 3 weeks ago. They removed 50 lymph nodes, 11 of which we're suspect and I had an 11 mm tumor on my thyroid. Was weird waking up from g.a losing 5 hrs of my life. Recovery went ok until my calcium levels to drop and my whole body went into muscle spasm which was very scary, at that point I was rushed to hdu to have cardiac monitoring and calcium infusion. Was only there overnight and the hdu staff where brilliant. Got out on the Monday as planned. Since then everything seems ok. Calcium levels are returning to normal, have a lot more movement in my neck. Go into beatson on the 9th dec for my radioactive iodine trmt. Hopefully only for a couple of days. Slowly getting there and hopefully over the worst.
Thanks to everyone for their best wishes. Take care x
