And a good afternoon to everybody. Have just got back from seeing the Top Surgeon for Thyroid stuff (yes thats the techincal term!!) and I must say I must be one lucky person..He was amazing. Firstly he asked about all my symptoms and I told him that I had "Under Active" symptoms, but my bloods had come back normal...OMG!!!!! he said well blood tests could mean they're ok for "Joe Bloggs" but mine could have a whole new meaning. I nearly fell of the chair. He did a diagram of the thyroid and showed me where Cyd (the cyst) was situated. I'm going to have a biopsy at some point but I asked him if its drained can we leave things as they are. He explained that as its 2.5cm then part of it is solid and part of it is liquid. If it was arouind 2cm he would just "drain" it. So bascially Cyd has to be removed and part of my thyroid He gave me all the percentages of what could go wrong/happen. Absolutely brilliant and the fact he said it all in english and not Latin or medical talk. Now a little secret and I hope you're all sitting down...... He also said that they're still learning about the thyroid and don't know everything!!!! THUD!!!!!!!
A well earned 250euro for 3/4hr and got in early!!! Bless you Prof Curran
