    I'm about to move to another state where I will have to access new doctors and a health Care system different from the one I've been a part of for the past 12 years. During this 12 years (I'm 68 now) my health issues brought me to an endocrinologist that took "my mother's advice to tell my doctor's" seriously about my "neck" radiation as an infant in 1950. My mother was an x-ray technician and worked for different GP...

      Thanks Barry, Have been on Synthroid now for five weeks after another ultra-sound found three more (5 total now) nodules, and following discussion with the endocrinologist doctor. I appreciate her monitoring this and making this recommendation of Synthroid despite normal TSH levels. Her "gestalt" as she put it was to make the thyroid gland shut down and hopefully reduce further module formations or growth. I wi...

        Hi Suggi, As I now wait on thyroid nodules status to be revealed; following hyperparathyroidism, ovarian tumor, stomach lining and colon polyps (all revealed in the past four years; I wonder what will come next, and will one of these become the cancer that kills me too. I can commiserate with the injustice of it all. After living life with the goal of optimal health into my senior years-I feel betrayed. My sc...

          Interesting how many times now I have heard about records being lost in fires. My sister deals with this with the government and VA system when it comes to her husband with Alzheimers!!

            Hi Barry. I am curious. I was given that "tremor" diagnosis almost 18 yrs ago. It remained stable all this time;until these past five months. Now it's difficult to write or type on my cell phone. Very tedious and bothersome. Did you ever have an MRI or CT during your identification with this condition? Mine showed small focal areas/lesions in the right parietal lobe; but was reportedly not related. Still wondering. ...

              interesting you mentioned a neurological condition. I have something called Benign Essential Familial Tremors. It has gotten worse this past year during parathyroid surgery and recovery and detection of other stomach infections and colon issues. I am waiting to see what's next!!! Ugh! Best wishes to you. I have added all on this site to my prayer list.

                My radiation was sometime after August 1950. Don't have any other info. Other than my mother was an X-ray technician and told me somewhere on my middle adult years about this having been done. And told me to inform any doctor I visited. I thought she was making too much of it from her former profession. It only came up as I pushed my new doctors (in a new health care system I had joined) to look further into my debi...
