Papillary Thyroid cancer total thyroidectomy

From: Fredster - 37 weeks 22 hours ago

Hi all,
I am a 36 yr old male that was in generally good health, i was recently diagnosed with PTC in both lobes with 1 nodule measuring 3.6 cm and one 2.4.
ultrasound was inconclusive if any lymph nodes were affected.
I am scheduled to have my thyroid removed in MSK in NYC in mid Feb.
I am pretty anxious as to what life will be w/o a thyroid and the risk of recurrence.
I was told by my surgeon that men don't have a lot of the side effects that women do....

Anyone have any tips/info from personal experiences?

thanks!
