I am 43yrs old female and was diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma after a biopsy from a solid 0.8cm nodule. The surgeon said I need a total thyroidectomy and that we wont know anything else until after surgery. Surgery has been scheduled for August 20 cause they are so full. I am so afraid that during this time it can spread and be worst.
I really dont know what to do. Should I look for another surgeon? But I am afraid that by the time I look for another surgeon and make an appointment and schedule another date it will be late too. I am dying from the inside. It is so hard to wait. I dont know how to deal with all these. I cant sleep, I cant eat, I dont want to do anything.
I need helpppppppp I am going crazy.
