I got a call from my doctor last night, and looks like I have thyroid cancer. I am not thrilled with the idea of surgery or of having to take a pill everyday for the rest of my life, but from what I understand, thyroid cancer is generally small potatoes as these things go. I've found some references to increased rates of thyroid cancer for folks with ME/CFS, but was unable to find an actual study anywhere. Does anyone know more about this relationship or an actual research article? Have you had thyroid cancer or a total thyroidectomy and if so, how did surgery recovery and long-term treatment with hormone replacement play into your ME/CFS symptoms?
