Clean Scan!

Got the double thumbs up today from my endo; clean ultrasound and blood work is al clear. The even better news is that they sent my blood back to the Mayo Clinic and it came back with no antibodies so I don't need a scan (and more radiation) either. All in all, a pretty prefect report. My endo actually did a fist pump when he read my blood. That stoked me, to put it mildly. He's a great guy my endo. When we were done talking cancer, we hung out for a few minutes and talked about watches. He's a guy after my own heart.

I asked him if this meant I was effectively cured and he told me what I kind of already knew: unlike other cancers, where you get a clean bill of health after X years (generally five), there's no such thing unfortunately with thyroid.

So, I guess I can live with that, as if I have a choice. Bottom line is that everything looks good and I couldn't ask for anything more. Having your health (not that I didn't exactly have it before, but you probably follow my point) makes everything in life, even this miserable economy, easier to digest.

Isnt it natural for us to believe we are healthy and not suffering from any disease ? I had a similar thought process until my physician asked me to get a heart scan done after he found that my basic cardiograms were not perfect. I discovered that there were calcium deposits in my coronary arteries and I was at a serious risk of a heart attack. I was shocked and went ahead with the Cardiologist's suggestion of an advanced diagnostic scan. Though its always tough to undergo such experiences, I was not at any kind of discomfort at the Elitehealth.com advanced heart scan facility. I am not an expert in medical appliance and machines but could feel that the equipment was world-class and I was in safe hands. That feeling is really very important for me and thats how it actually went on. The facilities for Full Body Scan were as good as they can get.
