Thyroid Throes

Went for a thyroid check up. My latest ultrasound shows the nodules on my thyroid have changed and I should have a biopsy. After that, if they are malignant, then my thyroid will be removed; if, like my last biopsy, they can’t get a reasonable sample, and the result is ambiguous, then she will refer me for surgery. But the decision will be mine.

If I have the thyroid removed, am afraid of the process of recalibrating my meds as my thyroid has been very difficult to stabilize.

Came home feeling slightly stunned, but later this mellowed into acceptance and peace. Felt a great kindness surrounding me, cradling me. Acceptance of what comes next. I asked my husband if he was worried and he said, “Oddly enough, no.” Which is what I also felt.
