i was diagnosed papillary thyroid cancer in the early year of 2009. the cancer lay on my right vocal cord and extended beyond border. i was then underwent total thyroidectomy operation and it was a fine one i had. few months later, i had a periodic laboratory tests of t4 and tsh and my onclologist planned for a CT scan with iodine uptake. after 4 months, i started my radiation therapy for 6 weeks, once daily exposure for 30 minutes. thyroglobulin lowered and taking of anti thyroid drug and calcium continued. im taking thyroxine 75 mcg. for 5 days and 100 mcg. for 2 days. the dosage of thyroxine varied depending on the periodic results of laboratory tests.
my advice is that once we are in this condition there must be a clinic visit to a thyroid endocrinologist and follow the medication as precribed. at present, i enjoy life and does my routines... i hope this experience will inspire to those patients having the same condition and intent to live normally and happy!
best regards to everyone
