Hey Ariel! Thanks for the well-wishes
Yeah, its apparently just a stonking huge nodule lol (3.5x2.5cms), am very lucky its seems to be benign and no related hormone issues. Not Hashimotos in that case, so I feel very fortunate.
Apologies about the hit n' posting lately everyone
I've been a bit flat out the past few days, taking my Mum to heart specialists and the cardiologist...looks like she will be getting a valve replacement asap as once symptoms have appeared it can be a rapid progression - though avoiding open-heart surgery (and the need for a heart/lung machine during the operation) if at all possible. 8am tomorrow I go in for the chop; planning on trying to get away with taking one days' supply of meds for an expected overnight stay, as (supposedly) the hospital can't guarantee that they won't be uh, misplaced
during staff changeovers etc. Rather lose one days supply rather than two! i can always get another brought in if there are complications and I have to stay longer.
Don't hold out much hope of catching up on everyone's posts here now, sorry guys! But I will get as much covered as possible.
