Update - Still Cancer free

That is about it. The lumps in my pits are, in fact, only lymph nodes. I wanted to say "I KNEW THAT"... but I KNEW that my thyroid was fine too and I was wrong on that as well. Better safe than surgery :-D

My synthroid has been bumped up to .150mg from .112mg. My TSH is just under 11... hopefully it will head downhill fast now. I would be sooo happy for it to be at a 4. It needs to be at a .1

Also, my thyroglobulen dropped from a 3.2 to 1.9... that means my lost thyroid cells are shrinking. I think.

New numbers:
BP - 103/63
BPM - 47 <-- whoa low, but I was falling asleep all day long.
T3 - 2.6 (range 2.3-4.2)
T4 - 1.2 (range .8-1.8)
Thyroglobulin - 1.9 (range 2.0-35)
TSH - 10.55

Old numbers:
BP - 103/65
T3 - 2.6 (range 2.3-4.2)
T4 - 1.1 (range .8-1.8)
Thyroglobulin - 3.4 (range 2.0-35)
TSH - 14.68


  1. Congratulations on Being Cancer Free! I was at a TSH of 11 and I had constant vertigo,but it sounds like you are doing okay on your TSH and other numbers and getting better. Thanks for writing about your experiences.

  2. Wow Heather - this is great! I am always grateful to God and especially when his will matches mine. (That is a miracle in itself at times.) I am happy for you that his will is to allow you to be healthy at this time in your life, meaning cancer free. I will continue to pray for you. Happy for the updates.
