Hi, my name is Emma and I’m 37. I was diagnosed with Thyroid cancer a couple of months ago when I was 17weeks pregnant. I had half of my thyroid removed at 20 weeks pregnant. My beautiful daughter was born very healthy a month ago. I have another operation to remove the other half of my thyroid on the 4th of May and will be getting iodine radiation around December/January, depending on if my milk supply has dried up or not (the societies are allowing me to breastfeed for six months). I was wondering if any one here had been pregnant when diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer? If anyone has experience with iodine radiation treatment who has kids? And if so how long did you have to isolate from your kids? Just feeling a little nervous about being away from Bub for a long period.
Definitely following this .
I too diagnosed with thyroid cancer in March . I just had surgery and will have radiation iodine in a month or 2 .
I don’t have a bub but two young boys . My plan was to given them to my mum a few days when I come back so they can have a “ sleep over”.
I’m really worried what lies ahead though.
