Thank you and I do have an appointment set up with them in August, but trying to move that up. It is the 13. I feel like you do and my body is too. I am not eating well, and in fact, eating makes me sick on my stomach. I have ate lots of Popsicles. I have pleaded with them to do something or tell me something, but the Endo continues to say they will go down and it is because of two neck surgeries so close together. I feel doubtful. The TT surgery was Dec 2015 and cervical spinal fusion in April 2016. And they have been swollen since the TT SURGERY, but have become larger instead of smaller. That is why I went to my GP to try and understand. He feels the same way that they need to do a scan now. I will see if I can get him behind me have get the scan earlier than September. I will let you know what I find out. If you think of anything that could be related to this, please let me know. Thank you again.

Do you have thyroid cancer?

According to the Endo, it was benign. So, no according to her. I have not felt comfortable with the answers that I have received based in all the symptoms and physical look of the right side of my neck I am praying she is right. The worst part is swallowing and extreme fatigue. I will update you know after I have the scan in September. I just thought I would be well by now and never expected all this swelling in my neck. Thank you for helping me and giving me great advice on what to ask as well.

You really need to contact the surgeon who did your last surgery. It's quite possible you have some kind of post surgery infection. 

Don't wait until September.

At the very least, you don't have to worry about thyroid cancer.

I will, and try hard to get in to see them. Yes, I feel this will soon be over. I am praying very hard to just feel better, swallow again without choking and just being sick. I truly appreciate your input. Will keep you posted when I find out what is going on. I have been trying at least 3 times a week to keep them posted and trying to get earlier appointments. Thank you!
