Wecome to the forum, Tanya1989.

Thyroid cancer treatment will not affect your ability to have children. Thyroid cancer is not caused by food or diet, and food and diet will not cure thyroid cancer. Treatment is surgery to remove the malignant thyroid lobe or the entire thyroid gland if it is an aggressive type. If you need follow up radioactive iodine ablatement you will be advised to avoid becoming pregnant for six months. After that you should be fine.

I am sure you will have been shocked by your diagnosis but quite a few of our members have had to have their thyroid gland removed. The following link may also be helpful.

Don't worry you'll be fine. Many members have had their thyroid gland removed due to cancer but as far as I know (and I'm not medically qualified) it is contained in the gland.

Yes, I am sure you can have a celebration for your birthday.

You'd have to ask doctor or endocrinologist if you can have a cigarette and alcoholic drink but I don't think you can smoke weed.

Those who have had thyroid cancer and had gland removed will respond when they read your post.

Well that's a relief at present that you have't had gland removed and you have still to wait for their 'diagnosis'.

Quite a number of members have had to have their thyroid gland removed and it is not always due to cancer.

As long as patients are given optimum thyroid hormone replacements they carry on with a normal life. You start on a 50mcg dose to begin with.

When you have blood tests after removal of your thyroid gland, always get the earliest possible appointment, fasting (you can drink water) and allow a 24 hour gap between levothyroxine and blood test and take it afterwards.

Levothyroxine should be taken on an empty stomach with one full glass of water, usually when we get up and wait an hour before eating. Food interferes with the uptake of thyroid hormones. Some prefer a bedtime dose, in that case you'd allow a gap of 2.5 to 3 hours after food.

Hello Tanya,

My daughter had thyroid cancer which had spread. She had her thyroid and lymph nodes out and is very healthy.

It's hard not to worry but please do things in the next day or so to feel relaxed. You will get through this and life will return to normal.

best wishes

Kerry
