Nodules, Cancer?!, Thyroid Robbing Me Of My Family!
How could you do this to me? At 34 years old, my husband and I have been struggling to begin the family we so desperately want. We had you tested time after time, and you gave us “normal” results. You were just teasing us!
I was 2 weeks away from the insemination. My husband and I were so excited to meet with the fertility specialist, to go over all the final details….then he saw you. He did an exam and he felt you. He told me you felt enlarged, and I should have an ultrasound just to make sure things were ok before, I got my dream…before we became pregnant with our long awaited first child.
Thyroid you are a BASTARD! 6 nodules, the largest being 3.2 cm and so solid, the biopsy had to be repeated 3 times before any fluid would come out. You JERK! Not only do I have to worry about cancer again (I had Ovarian at the age of 15) you have stolen our child!!!
If these nodules are malignant as my Endocrinologist believes, then it may be up to a year before we can try insemination again.
How could you do this to me? And to my Husband and family who have been so supportive in our infertility journey. They shared our joy when we told them we could try insemination, and now you have scared them, too. How dare you?! You will be taken away from me in the next few weeks and I can’t wait until you are gone. You have broken my heart, you mysterious butterfly.
