i also want to mention ever since i had this fna , my throat hasnt stopped hurting , i also have burning pain in my chest, and the feeling of something stuck in my throat is so much worse..
I have no medical training and would not give advice. I wanted to share my personal experience from after my thyroid biopsies.
I don't know how long ago your fine needle aspiration was done but after my biopsies (fna) it took a week or two for my throat to go back to where it was before the biopsies. (based on my physical feeling) My doctor told me that it would only be a few days but whether the procedure aggravated my inflammation or I was hyper-sensitive with so much going on I don't know. It was much longer than I expected after the procedure before I felt like talking or could swallow comfortably. If you are having pain long term or the sensation of swelling, please contact your doctor. It is not fun, I hope you are feeling better.
no not taking any thyroid meds as of yet,Are you taking thyroid medication? If not, it's possible that sufficient thyroid replacement hormones will suppress TSH and reduce the inflammation. The FAA has rules for thyroid cancer survivors. They require a completely suppressed TSH to help prevent future problems, to help prevent severe fatigue and keep a pilot 100% functional.
