Hi all - its been forever!

Well its been a while!  I report that I no longer have "swelling" of the thyroid - it just got stuck as larger on the right now without an up and down anymore.  I really just stopped by to say hello!  Something I am sure my doctor thinks is funny happened about a week ago - I had some abdominal pain friday before last and finally could take no more of it on that sunday - went to the ER and WOW - a pg test was "faintly positive".  I am sure you can imagine my dismay as I had a tubal in October (and subsequent staph infection that landed me in the hosp. for a week)!!!!  Well - blood confirmed and they admitted me so I had yet another surgery last Monday to remove the ruptured tubal pregnancy, with removal of both tubes and the right ovary since the rupture causes severe damage and a blood clot surrounding the ovary.  SHEESH! I thought I was done with it!  I feel better now and am back to work this week.  Just thought I would share!  Missed you guys and hope everyone is well! ~K

Hey gals!  The thyroid stopped the "swell" and I guess the perminent size is what it is now.  I can still see the difference in size in the mirror (probably more due to the fact that I shed abt 15 lbs -- opted for a script to aid in that but then lost 7 due to the recent mishap with my reproductive organs).  I am no longer taking the Armour and no longer seeing a doc right now for the thyroid.  Will just see how it goes I guess - it doesn't get bigger and choke me now.  I don't have any pain there anymore and I guess I am no more tired than I was ever before.  Guess I just had a year and half long thyroiditis?  Who knows!  The docs here didn't.  It finally stopped all the mess a couple of months ago and settled to where it is now and just left the lingering weight that came with it.  I was up to 155 and couldn't take it anymore (was always 130s before this) so the doc helped with that.  Anyway - missed you too! ;)
