I had my thyroidectomy on December 11, 2015. This week I got the results that I had Thyroid Cancer. The "Study" and Iodine Radiation isn't scheduled until January 13, and 14, 2016. I am very concerned about not having medication until afterwards. I am depressed, cold, having panic attacks and wonder how long people can go without TSH. I heard you had to be off it for 2 weeks before, couldn't they have given me some for a week? With 17 more days to go, seems like a long time.
