Thyroid Update

So every spring a certain snack cake maker celebrates thyroids....seriously....these little cakes look more like thyroids than they do the intended butterflies....lol. They even have the pink, purple, teal colors of the thyroid cancer awareness ribbon sprinkled on top!


So today marks one year without my thyroid. I have met with my endocrinologist this month. My new normal of annual neck ultrasounds and blood work for cancer markers came back negative for evidence of papillary thyroid cancer coming back or spreading to my lymph nodes (yippee). I have dealt with a ton of weight gain and hair loss as we try to figure out my medication levels (boo - if only those could have been switched). My endo just changed my medication (again)...fingers crossed for improvement. 

That's all I have to say about that.....just wanted wanted to give you an update on what's happening in this NECK of the of the woods.....hahahaha.....neck.....
