Hi Great news, received a letter this week following surgery that no cancer was found in my thyroid which the letter said "was reassuring" which was quite strange wording. I would like some advice please as I have a post surgery appointment with the surgeon on 14 November and I really would like to know what sort of questions I need to ask. The right side of my thyroid was removed due to a large nodule and my sister had thyroid cancer 7 years ago but she lives in Australia where they seem to be more forthcoming re follow ups. Prior to surgery the surgeon said that the left hand side would take over thyroid production and I wouldn't need medication unless they needed to remove the left side if cancer were found. should I there be blood tests to check when I have this appointment? If so what tests? My original scan also showed small cysts on the left side but the Dr said not to worry about th as they were small but shouldn't there be some sort of monitoring in the future? I just want to make sure I ask everything I need to as I have a feeling it will be my only chance with the doctor at the hospital. I feel truly blessed to have had this result. thank you in advance
