I was originally diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2003, supposed to be one quick surgery maybe one RAI ablation and all should be fine. not so 5 ablations 6 months off and on in Vanderbilt another surgery and the maximum amount of RAI that any human is supposed to ever have. I now have none lung nodes..One located on a main artery close to my aaorta.The cardiologist says he can get the one for biopsy but I am deconditioned from everything leading up to this, Pulmonist, GP, Medical oncologist want me to have it dome but 3 days in hosp, then two weeks constant care in a recovery center, I am so confused, I really do not have anyone to support me or to just talk to about this and I do not know what to do, i cant become more DEConditioned, as i take care of myself now and cant lose what ability I have now..I'm really tired of the fight too, Someone please help me make the right decision,
