Well, this sucks. I have to have my thyroid removed. My Endocrinologist has been monitoring my thyroid and thyroid nodules for a very long time. The nodules have been biopsied more than once, really nothing conclusive came from the biopsies.
I am going to see the Otolarynologist in August.
I'm 63 years old and tired. I'm done with being sick all of the time. 🤕
I'm sorry to hear that you're going through such a challenging time. While I can't provide medical advice, I can offer you words of encouragement. It's essential to stay positive and focus on taking care of yourself during this time.

Hang in there, with illness like chrons the body often swings too far down and life can feel hopeless. Its like a rollercoaster. Just hang in there, better will come at some point. You have a plan in place to deal with the thyroid, and that is a good start.

Thank You for your thoughts 😊
I have been seeing my Endocrinologist for probably 20 years. She is my favorite doctor. I trust her decision that it's finally time for my thyroid to be removed. She has been doing ultrasounds of my thyroid nodules consistently and even biopsies for quite a while.

The stress of my current living situation is not good for my physical and mental health, but I can't change where I live. I will have my thyroid surgery and come "home" to chaos. Being fatigued every day too just sucks. ☹.
