My Journey of surviving cancer two times
OK a little introduction about myself, kind of feels like you’re the new kid in school when you have to do this kind of thing you know LOL. I am on level 37 I am female and I am married. I have a house full of rescued chinchillas and one bunny. I am now a two-time cancer survivor, I was originally diagnosed with thyroid cancer in my mid 20s, I had to bring it up to my family doctor because my thyroid function swollen and I would pop when I would turn my head. They were very unconcerned and said yes that is your thyroid and that was that. Fast forward a year and I was at my annual appointment with my gynecologist and the LPN was a bit concerned with how in large my thyroid had been it looks like a golf ball in my neck. She sent me for I do believe and ultrasound which showed my thyroid was basically completely taken over with a nodule it was in like a little nodules it was one great big one so they sent me for an uptake scan in nuclear medicine at the local hospital. After that showed that the left side of my thyroid was not functioning at all we decided that it was going to come out and I opted to not do the original F and a biopsy since I had to have the surgery anyway. When they did the surgery the initial slide said it was not cancer so they close me up and I was done with surgery. The hospital had sent the slides out to a second hospital to look at it and it came back that it was papillary and follicular types of cancer and my thyroid. So about three weeks after that I was back in the operating room having my right side removed which also had micro papillary cancer in it. Fast forward to this yearIn July, I went to a urologist for some microhematuria and they sent me for a CAT scan and found the cancer on my kidney. It was hanging off the bottom of my left kidney like a Lougee. So then in the middle of July I had that removed and that came back to be green or clear cell cancer so there we go that’s kind of where I’m at now. How is everyone today
