Went into surgery with a sore throat & cold. They did a TT & removed a few lymph nodes that were enlarged. The pathologist tested the lymph nodes, were ok (I know this is not accurate until further testing). So with the enlarged lymph nodes does that mean TC? Everything I've read says TC in lymph nodes or nodule/thyroid. Now I worry...ENT says nodule was 3.8cm. (ultrasound in June 2013 was 3.2cm in Nov. 2013 was 3.4cm). She kept the 4 parathyroids (checked 2 & put them back). Surgery was about 4-4 1/2hrs. Thanks for listening. phb.

Congrats on being finished with surgery! And unfortunately, now you wait. It's difficult to have to wait for your pathology results...as you know. When will you get your final pathology results?

Congrats -- how are you feeling?

I had three positive nodes (ten total removed). It did not effect my treatment or change my prognosis.

I am not sure I remember them saying at the start I did but was normal with hashi. they were more concerned about the hard lump that was moving my thyroid to the left hand side x
