Ok, So my ultrasound results will not be back until sometime early next week. The tech wasn’t allowed to say anything except that the radiologist would need up to 24 hours to read the scans and submit the report. Then my doctor will receive the results and take her time before notifying me of the official report.
I am not stupid, and know very well how sonograms work. As she was clicking and scanning, I counted at least 7 spots that she stopped and measured. On the way out of the clinic I received one of my God message plates: 708 ARE… so I likely counted 7 of 8 nodules. It is not uncommon for 2 to be right next to each other.
Anyway, I’ve already been refreshing my knowledge on thyroid issues since the not stellar labwork in March. However, knowing for certain I am dealing with nodules of unknown sizes, I needed to refresh my knowledge on what to do.
I visited these pages, since I know it has been a very reliable source for me several years running:
To my amazement, I had been doing everything correctly. Had being the operative word. I had backed off because of dancing the line of high symptoms. I had thought I was overdoing it and reeled back significantly. According to the data in the one ladies’ case study I should have only backed off a little. That range of walking right up to the high line, but doing your best not to cross it. It’s a fine window, which for me is sometimes a single drop of iodine in difference.
So, I know what to do, and regardless of what the doc says (probably just watch them), I will proceed accordingly. Please do continue to send prayers. Even making the assumption they are benign, I do believe in the power of prayer and gladly accept any and all help I can get. I am sure that they will wait 3 to 6 months and rescan to see my progress. I personally hope the next scan will be a huge improvement.
As for myself today, I have a light work day, so I intend to get some exercise on less treacherous terrain, re-up my seaweed stores, and look into getting some really high quality CBD oil (maybe even cannabis gummies now that MO is medically legal). It all helps and I have a renewed interest and zeal for knocking this out of the park.
May you find confidence in your abilities and knowledge. May you know howto handle your health and create solutions and healing. May you be certain of your okay-ness. May you know it is all alright. May you have support and love always, but especially when you need it the most. May you know you are cared for.

Update; Fast results. One friend said : yay pandemic 🤣. I’m inclined to agree. There were several nodules, she didn’t specify exact number, but commented they were mostly small. There was only one that was even large enough to biopsy (2mm larger than minimum biopsy size) and it’s the one I can feel pressing on my voicebox. They think when the inflammation goes down it will to, so consensus is to rescan in 8 to 12 weeks. I totally got this shit. Happy dance!
