Thyroid Cancer Manifested as Overall Discomfort

By iamjustingray iamjustingray

Before I found out about my thyroid cancer I thought I was going through depression – I felt very moody and lethargic, finding myself napping at 9:30am. My wife began to notice these changes and was confused, because I’m normally not the type of person to feel down and tired all the time. I was […]

Weathered the Storm

By cory cory

My words to others is – it gets better, It was a challenge and the unfamiliar and unknown can be scary. The process was rough. I didn’t see or feel a lump and barely knew what a thyroid was. I just had a minor sore throat. My regular doctor gave me some antibiotics and said […]

Yeah for Dr.Yeh

It started with a Kidney Stone

My kidney specialist was giving me medications to lower my calcium levels, however this was masking the hidden parathyroid problem that was creating the high levels of Calcium.

Leading […]
