great news!

Around 4:20 this afternoon the phone rang, and it was the radiology lab. Uh-oh, I thought. It had been just over 24 hours since the test. I figured it meant one of two things: I either forgot to fill out some paperwork or there was some concern. Thank goodness, I was wrong and neither was the case! The nurse had my test results and it showed “absolutely no malignancy.” I am relieved like you cannot imagine!!! I have to thank everyone who was thinking of me or praying for me.

The test did show the presence of lymphocytes. That indicates Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis — something my PCP suspected when my first thyroid screen came back. I had already made an appointment with an endocrinologist, so the lab is going to mail me these results for me to take when I see her in August.

So now I can go back to concerning myself with mundane things like how to get rid of blackheads. I don’t know about you, but this heat and humidity has my skin all broken out! I’m not complaining, though. I’ll take pimples over the alternative any day 🙂

    Thank HEAVENS ! That is wonderful news and I’m so glad you let us know so quickly. Now I’m of to Google this thyroiditis stuff to see what it’s all about, but piece o’ cake compared to what could’ve been, right?

    So relieved for you, for your family, for all of us who enjoy you so much.

    That is great news. I am scheduled for a FNA on next Thursday, 7/22. I am a nervous wreck.. but was so happy to find your post that described the procedure. I have multiple nodules > 1.5 cm on the right side of my thyroid that they will be “needling”. Just need to get it over with and deal with the results… thanks again for your post!
