Life after thyroid cancer

Hi 

I am new in here, but after surviving cancer I am dealing with depression and PTSD. From the moment I found out I had cancer until 5 months ago everything was fine but from there to here I started to feel anxious, cry every time and feel sad for no reason. I went to doctors and they told me a suffer from reative depression and PTSD. The moment I found out i had cancer was hard because I was in the first week of college away from my parents. I want to know if one of you suffer from that and what you did to get well again?

Thank you

The key to all condition is first acceptance, I feel so sorry for your condition, most people do not accept their condition that's why they end up being frustrated and depressed this could later become uncontrollable and may lead to suicide. Once you pass that stage of acceptance everything becomes a lot easier, you can then proceed to give your self to the treatment options of your diseases while trying to keep a happy spirit, I know people who have gotten healed  from outrageous disease because of positive thinking, I will encourage you to be very positive also read more about your condition to see if your cancer is diet related ,medications should always be the last thing to take after considering natural cure and mind healing ,you can also see your doctor  for assistance or ordering medications from emisprescription.com ,I particularly get my meds from them

In a similar condition, I had a light depression, for which my Endo prescribed Escitalopram Oxalate. I never felt it did much good, but since it wasn't doing anything bad, I kept taking it. 

After my diagnosis changed to Stage 4, I entered a bad depression where I felt sad all the time and feared my death was iminent. To deal with that, I got counseling and was referred to a psychiatrist, which prescribed me Vortioxetine. 

After a year, I am now feeling well. It seems that both counseling and medication were required, in my case, to get things back in order.

I am so sorry for a young person with cancer. I am old so it is easier, I think, for me to face possible death. Now that my treatment is past and I am physically recovering, I am getting less pessimistic. I've decided to do what I like, instead of what is expected- go new places, dye my hair blue, begin ESL tutoring, volunteer at the food bank, learn to knit Knitted Knockers for breast cancer survivors. I don't want to sound corny but thinking and acting for some thing other than myself has done me a lot of good. Take all the meds your docs suggest, too. Good luck

Hi, so many people that had thyroidectomies have issues that mimic depression and anxiety. I would be sure to test your Free T4 and Free T3 levels and make sure they are at good levels for you. Do you know those levels? If they are too low or too high, they can cause you to feel fatigued or anxious.

This will make you jump off the edge. I had cancer that had spread all over including my thyroid, with multiple tumors as well. Surgery? Naa. Chemo, radiation? Naa. What would really piss off not only everyone in the world including this web site? Getting healed by changing what had given me cancer to begin with. LIFESTYLE. Most people here have said they would rather die than change their diet. The reason you got cancer to begin with was the high toxicity and low nutrition that is you. 99% of all cancer is the same. The thyroid needs iodine. Find a high quality multivitamin and iodine. This will help you out. I have done in house studies with a roommate who suffered from skitzophrenia. I would have him eat food preservatives and he would be howling at the wind in the front yard at 3 am. Fed him good food, no preservatives and he was as normal as could be. Marcelina all real studies have shown that you need to quit chocolate, dairy, salt, sugar and meat. Go vegan and heal, or not.
