Had RAI successfully about 7 years ago. Starting to feel worse again, and have now got what appears to be the start of a Goitre at the top of my neck, almost like Mumps! GP is great and ordered a scan and blood test just for TSH to see if it's kicked off again, but just wondering what other people know about this - is it common and what to expect following the scan?
My biggest dread is if they decide to take a sample via a needle biopsy - because I just want them to remove it anyway, so would prefer just to have an op to remove it - it's getting bigger and pressing on my swallowing or if I take a t-shirt off it is horrid (sounds nuts I know but it feels like I am being strangled!) I can't see the point of having a nasty needle thing - just to then go in and operate anyway to take it all out!
I am wondering if my Thyroid has started up again, do they go for another round of RAI or just remove the Thyroid? If I am having that done then maybe get the lumpy neck done at the same time?
Will know more after tests/scans, but wanted an 'overview' of options so I am ready with the right questions!
Love to all on here - not been on for ages since I am 'coping' but always read through the updates with great interest!
