I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that I am recovering from surgery fairly well. AND recovering from the pnemonia.

 

 

 

The bad news.

 

When I went into the hospital, they did a cat scan and found a 2 cm nodule on my thyroid. Wednesday I am starting with an ultra sound, and then will be going on to other tests (redioactive iodine anyone?)

 

 

 

The good news: Only about 10% of nodules wind up being cancerous.

 

The bad news: The bigger they are the more likely they are cancerous.

 

Then today I went to the orthopedic surgeon, for follow up and to have them explain what is going on in my knee. So...

 

The good news: I won't need knee surgery for a year or two.

 

The bad news: Most of the miniscus was removed, and there is severe arthritis I have no cartledge on the end of the bones top and bottom.

 

The good news: Oh wait.... there is no good news!

A2N, I have nodules in my thyroid. I've had the ultrasound, and the biopsy (2x). I hated the biopsy, but all turned out benign. I've had 2 knee surgeries, one involving the meniscus removal. You can & will recover. Time will heal things, as do your PT like they tell you. If your insurance provides for it, go to a professional physical therapist--it will help a lot to motivate you and make sure you are doing the exercises properly.

 

Hang in there!
