Thyroid Cancer..Help!

Postby Angelofmercy » Sat Sep 06, 2014 4:42 am

I was dx in 2013 with papillary multifocal thyroid cancer. I had two surgeries back to back and radioactive treatments and body scans.
they have been trying to make me hyperthyroid so if there are any cancer cells left....they won't activate and cause cancer somewhere else. I know this sounds confusing, and I'm a Nurse, and its confusing to me LOL
Anyway, I'm there now, and I think it's probably one of the reasons I can't sleep....here's what I have to live with the rest of my life, on top of being DID, anxious, and an insomniac before hand.
Sudden weight loss, even when your appetite and the amount and type of food you eat remain the same or even increase
Rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) — commonly more than 100 beats a minute — irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) or pounding of your heart (palpitations)
Increased appetite
Nervousness, anxiety and irritability
Tremor — usually a fine trembling in your hands and fingers
Changes in menstrual patterns
Increased sensitivity to heat
Changes in bowel patterns, especially more frequent bowel movements
An enlarged thyroid gland (goiter), which may appear as a swelling at the base of your neck
Fatigue, muscle weakness
Difficulty sleeping
Skin thinning
Fine, brittle hair
Nice huh? I might as well check myself in somewhere and go totally off the rails
It's the Dance of Life that makes us whole. When you get the chance.....Dance
