Persistent Thyroid Cancer

Hi friends, I had a complete thyroidectomy in May 21 and did not have RAI as was given a less than 5% chance of recurrence/ persistence. Had my check up ultrasound in January which showed 4 suspicious lymph nodes, had FNA in Feb with confirmed PTC persistence. I have an appointment with a surgeon on Monday to be given a date for a neck dissection. So I feel that everything is on hold. I will have the RAI 6-12 weeks after surgery. I’ve had to wait since the end of Feb for this appointment with the surgeon…..that’s been difficult.

Hi @MJ1970 

How did the appointment and neck dissection go?

Hope everything is relatively well for you.
