Hi everyone
Glad to be back home, this is the first time on my pc since my operation. I spend 8 days in hospital, guess they remove all cancer and my thyroid gland. The third day they had to re-open my operation because of bad swelling. I found it pretty hard, but now I am home, a nurse comes everyday to change my bandages. It is still very sore, and I sleep a lot,and I am very weak, this probably because of all the medication I am taking. I'll be back on my feet soon. Hope everyone is well.
Love
Micheline :)

Thanks for the update - I was hoping you'd write back since I had been thinking about you. I hope that things just steadily improve for you from here on out & they got all the cancer out.

(((hugs))) Take care of yourself and sleep all you want! ;)

Hi Micheline,

Sorry to hear you had to have two operations. Sleep is just what you need right now. Your body needs a little time to recoup.

Have you started on any thyroid replacement?

Take care,

Hi Micheline,:hug:

I am happy that you are back home. Being in the hospital for that length of time can get tiring. Getting woke up at all hours, different mattress.

Listen to your body and rest and sleep all you can.

Love,
Lyn

Hi you're all so kind,

Hi everyone
Thank you for all you support. I have not sign in lately for I was really not feeling up to it, but I read all your note and I am greathfull for your encouragement and concern. Its been 3 weeks now since my OP and still I am not feeling well. They had to re-open me again because of fluid built up again it is now the second time after my surgery. Last Saturday I spend and other full day in ER , they re-open my op again and extended my antibiotics for an other 10 days, nurse still come home every day to change the bandages but it doesn't seem to heal very fast,Doc put me on CYTOMEL 25mg for now Anyways tomorrow I got to go see my surgeon, hopefully, she will tell me what to do and expect.
Hope I'll be chating with you all soon!
thinking about you all and praying for you
Bye for now
Miche :(

(((((((((((Micheline))))))))))) I'm sorry you are still feeling so lousy after your operation (or operations I should say). I hope the Cytomel helps you feel a little better soon and I hope the surgeon gives you a good report :luck:

Do let us know how you are, you're in our thoughts and prayers :hug:

love
Lily
