Two weeks ago I had a fna and scan where they found a 2.8 cm lump contained within one nodule. I was fast tracked to see consultant as fna was inconclusive. So today I've had the works cameras checking my throat, blood tests, ultrasound and another fna.
For background I has tsh level tested five months ago and it was 0.75 but they also diagnosed pernicious anemia. I'm on b12 jabs but having to use sublingual as well to keep brain fog at bay. Am still tired all the time and feel yuk.
Saw my consultant again at 1pm to get results and been told I have a 3cm thy 3 follicular nodule and that it is borderline as being cancer (anyone know the statistics or got any links I can shufty at?) He I think is suggesting partial thyroidectomy to remove the half containing the dodgy nodule (brain fog was kicking in as I tried to take in all the info). He was good and saw I was trying to take it all in and has arranged another appointment on 2nd Oct to go over the surgical plan and sign consent forms.
I suppose my question really is advice from those who've undergone similar ops, recovery times, affect on voice, or any good articles I can read up on before then.
Thanks for reading
