So I had an ultrasound to check for thyroid nodules.
Doctor confirmed no nodules but a very patchy thyroid tissue lining consistent with thyroiditis in past (is that consistent with a specific attack/virus or ongoing Hashimoto?)
Anyway she showed me the scan and showed my thyroid full of holes.. you could barely make the horseshoe lining out.
But then she showed me her own thyroid (!) perfectly smooth and full and no holes!
And my heart broke 💔
I want to laugh but I suddenly felt such loss at my poor little lost thyroid. They’ve always said it’s very small due to long term treatment etc but it just seemed so stark.
Am I being silly? 😕
