zoe- I dug out my report again so I could write you exactly what mine says:
Findings- Multiple palpable nodules
Findings- Real time anc color Doppler scanning were performed. There is no prior study for comparison. The right gland measure 4.5 by 2 by 2 cm and the left gland measures 2.9 by 1.5 by 1.5 cm. There are multiple nodules bilaterally. On the right side is the largest which measures 1.8 by 1.5 by 1.5 cm. It is isoechoic solid nodule at the upper pole.
On the left side there is a uniformly hyperechoic solid nodule at the upper pole measuring 1.3 by 0.7 by 0.6 cm.
Conclusion- Multinodular gland with the largest nodules being solid located at the upper poles as described.
From what I am reading it seems as though mine might be larger so I am now really wondering why a biopsy wasn't suggested. I was reading online that if they are 1.5cm or larger then they should be biopsied. I will be looking into this!
Yes I like what the Tibetan reading says..it does make sense and I will have to remember that also when I think about my kitty. I always get my cats from the shelter. We have had the most wonderful loving cats from there.
Keep in touch and thanks for posting your report..
Soxan.. i hope you push for a biopsy. As another said, thyriod cancer is VERY COMMON in our illness. Ive heard of some CFS/ME specialists finding it in their patients at a rate of 17%. (I think i recently heard of one finding it at higher rates then that). You need to make sure this is completely ruled out.
I cant remember who it was but someone here mentioned weight gain for no reason and cholestrol going up and food issues. Make sure you've been tested for insulin resistance if those things are going on by a 2 hr insulin tolerance test. Those symptoms are what my insulin issues have caused (Ive been putting on weight from what it appears to be from drinking cordial, due to insulin issues). The kind of weight gain which goes onto the tummy.
