I study myself, and shrug. "Guess I'm the opposite of most menopausal women." Within a month I dropped 10 pounds...and not water weight. Sweetman's right about losing body mass. But I figure after the crazy year we've had with his cancer, the grandbaby, and the daughter...well...it just has to be stress.
"Why aren't you taking this seriously? This is your health we're talking about!"
Okay. So I went to see the doctor. She ran all kinds of blood tests per the Sweetman. This included tomber markers, which came back negative.
But when the doctor felt around my neck and thyroid, she said, "You've got a lump."
Wednesday, I go for an ultrasound of the thyroid. It's probably a goiter. Something common for peeps with Hashaimoto's Disease. It's nothing serious, but will end up being surgically removed.
Anyone else out there coping with a thyroid disease?
