“…when the truth is, not all cancers matter”
Just because something is unlikely to kill you, doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter. For something to matter it has to be important or significant which means all cancers matter. Being diagnosed with cancer, of any type, is a significant event in not just the patient’s life but the life of their friends and family.
A while ago I did an interview with What’s up Whats on magazine about my experience with Thyroid Cancer you can read it here
It’s day 11 of my new dose of thyroxine and I have a feeling my body isn’t going to like this one :(
I’ve seen a few people say it so I thought I’d bring the debate to tumblr
Do you consider your morning dose of thyroxine chemo?
I wish there was a book that told me how to keep calm and happy and basically hide the fact I hate 99.99% of people when I’m adjusting to a new dose.
My latest set of results came back, here’s what I got!
Calcium: 2.26 mmol/L (win!)
Pretty good all round so I’m pleased, but my endo wants to lower me down to 100mcg a day which worries me a little because obviously I have to be kept a little higher than normal, which I am. I’ve never been on a dose this low either and now that I’ve adjusted to 125mcg I feel ok on it the majority of the time.
When I was on 150mcg my oncologist said that was perfect, but I guess they’re seeing it from different perspectives. My Onc thinking “OH SHIT CANCER” and my Endo thinking “OH SHIT HER HEART”
Regardless I’ll try the dose until I get the results of my next blood test I’m due to have in 12 weeks, and if they suck or Im struggling I’ll hopefully be able to go back up to 125 and convince them that dose is a happy medium!
