Ok sorry for not putting the next exciting episode on my blog...
Right my report is and I quote "A large complex nodule is demontstrated (Why is it demonstating...!!!!) in the posterior aspect of the left lobe of thyroid measured at 2.5cm (just under an inch) max diameter. Further discrete nodules is (is shouldn't that be are!!!!!) also noted in the left lobe. There is no mediastinal mass or adenopathy (thats the good news as its not cancerous) So the ENT Specialist is going through this and explaining in simple english terms (she needs to for 100euros for 10 mins!!!) saying how good it was of my Dr to refer me....oh hang on I said it was me who insisted, the Dr had just said all my bloods were normal and basically off you go!!! Quick change of tack from ENT Specialist!!! Don't you just love em!!! So I'm now being referred to a Surgeon as she thinks the best way forward would be to havet Cyd removed (Cyd is the name we have Christened the Cyst!!) They would remove Cyd plus the part of the thyroid its attached too. My hero husband jumps in and says what are the othe other options. Well theres always the fine needle, which basically would drain Cyd and then I would have to have ultra sounds to make sure all was well...but she said I think the best way forward is to have it removed. Now I am a lady who feels slicing and dicing is not always the best way to go, plus the fact I now only have the basic organs that are keeping me alive..ok maybe a slight exaggeration but warts and all I would like to have some of my bits left to pass onto medical sience when I kick the bucket!!! Oh and bless the Specialist I said well Cyd must have been causing the "under active thyroid" problems then... Not necessarily was the reply...5 minutes later....well this could explain the smptoms you were getting.....Couldn't you just write a book!!! Why are they so afraid of actually commiting themselves!!! ok lets not go there!!!
And just an update I have got an appointment to see the surgeon today (Friday) will update with part 3!!!
So is there anybody out there who has (a) the cyst removed and part of the thyroid ......how are you feeling, has it had any effect (like thyroid smptoms) and (b) has anybody had the "drain" option and again how are you feeling etc etc.
