It seems the good spirits of my last blog post were a little premature. A shortish time after I had got through chronicling how well I was feeling, I noticed a letter in the mail box.
The letter was from my surgeon to my endocrinologist, CCd to me, and included my pathology results. Radioactive iodine is definitely happening but, more than that, the firm diagnosis was of insular carcinoma, an even more rare and aggressive form of thyroid cancer than the medullary carcinoma originally diagnosed. So, that sucks.
