    Really sorry to hear that Graham, i hope you can get something sorted out with your consultant tomorrow. Let us know how you get on if you can, take care.

    I have had thyroid surgery, Graham and it's relatively straightforward with a very quick recovery. I hope you can avoid an op but sometimes fine needle aspiration can only give an inconclusive result and the nodule needs to be removed to be examined more accurately.

    Hi Pulisa, thanks for replying and for your good wishes! I was actually warned at the time I had my aspiration that it might not be conclusive and they might have to do some more.

    Please let us know what is decided? I just wanted to say that the surgery is routine and no big deal if in fact they do decide to take the nodule out.

    Hi Pulisa (and Redsmum),

    Just a quick update to say that I had the surgery just before Christmas (9th November) and am now resting at home (we're all resting at home thanks to Covid, I know). I've also had my follow-up appointment with the thyroid surgeon this week and he told me that the lump was benign after all and I won't need radiotherapy, which is a great relief.

    Thanks for all your support and concern.

    Really pleased to hear this, Graham and thanks for letting us know. Look after yourself and make sure you get regular blood tests to check your thyroid levels after the surgery.
