Well, I got my period yesterday morning - Boooo! Looks like we'll be putting TTC on hold until after my thyroidectomy. I am going to call the surgeon's office tomorrow morning and see if they can call me if they get any openings before February 12th for a consult...I just want to get this thing over with. I've been doing some heavy research with my friend google, and supposedly only 20% of "suspicious" nodules removed end up being cancer. I keep telling myself that even if it is cancer it is 100% curable...but I still don't like that word! Anyways, while I was doing research with my new BFF google, I did read that if the nodule is not cancer then you do not have to take the radioactive iodine pill. The way my endocrinologist was talking the other day, it sounded like I would take the pill regardless. However, if I take the pill it's advised to wait 6 months to TTC. When I meet with the surgeon I need to discuss this with him. I don't know if having the internet at my hands so easily for research is a good thing or not....you are able to find so much information and your brain starts thinking all sorts of things that I suppose you wouldn't even be thinking of. But, obviously I can't stop myself from researching like crazy! Ugh!
