Had to call the ENT again

Jan 22, 2009 - 9 comments

When I was there Tuesday, he told me I could have my thyroid out..... hmmm -

Anyway, went in with random eye dull / numbness feeling around the socket and all that other stuff.  The swollen thyroid, etc.

Today, I woke and above my eyelid (right eye) has a dull pressure feeling - the inside - right of my throat is numb (best way to describe it) from the top of my mouth to around where my thyroid would be (inside of throat of course) - tongue has that same feeling on the right only and, my ear goes from numb / inner burning to mild pain.

Right sided of body is possessed.

Waiting on a call from him / nurse now.

Guess it needs it's own entry .... kind of like a "welcome to my saga"

US dated 10/29/08

The isthmus appears normal.  Right thyroid lobe dimensions currently are 1.6 x 2.0 x 4.8 cm compared to prior dimensions of 1.4 x 2.0 x 5.3 cm.  Left thyroid lobe dimension currently are 1.5 x 1.5 x 4.8 cm compared to prior dimensions of 1.3 x 1.6 x 5.0 cm.  These values are not considered significantly changed.

On the right, there is slight diffuse heterogeneity of the echogenicity without a focal lesion.  On the left side, there is diffuse heterogeneity, also without focal lesion.

Impression:  Stable, mild thyromegaly without focal thyroid lesion.  Findings are consistent with a mild pattern of multinodular goiter.

My thyroid is choking me today!

I feel ok except my thyroid is choking me.  I am having the numbness again today in my face and I am convinced now that my thyroid swelling is swelling on or around a nerve.  I HATE MY THYROID.  I think I will be telling my doc in November that I want this thing out.
