When should I call to see about setting up the thyroid u/s appt? My Endo appt was Wednesday morning & they're supposed to set it up & call me to let me know when it is. So tomorrow being Friday is it too soon to call & bug them? It wasn't really bothering me until I just googled some thyroid cancer stuff (bad me! google is bad!) and my Uncle had to get part of his thyroid removed and now I'm wondering if he had thyroid cancer & that's why. My dad didn't say he did, but maybe he doesn't want to scare me, or maybe my Uncle didn't even tell my Dad, I can see both of those things being realistic. I just want to get the u/s over with so I know for sure! And so I can stop freaking out!!

I just read your post so I'm not sure if you called today, but if not I would call on Monday. I don't think it would be a big deal to go ahead and call if it will ease your mind. And as far as what you read on the internet it can really get you scared. I had a pap done about 4 months after my son was born and it came back abnormal. I wasn't too scared until they did a biopsy and it came back pre-cancerous. When I looked up what they had told me on the internet the panic set in. What I read scared me death and had me so worried. I had to go back to the Dr and have a procedure done to remove part of my cervix and everything has been fine since. I had to have paps done every 3 months for the next year and they all came back normal. So, my outcome was nothing like I read on the internet, thank God! I know you are worried but don't pay attention to what you read online. I pray everything will be okay for you!

The internet sometimes can be a source of TOO much information sometimes, that's for sure. =/ I'm trying hard not to worry too much about the u/s, tho I did call today. Forgot the lady isn't in the office at all on Fridays tho, so I left a message. I'll probably bug her again on Monday. lol

The unknown waiting period however hit me hard today all of a sudden. I wish we at least had a time frame. But what can ya do. =/

HI Becky,


I don't know the details on your situation but you are checking out thyroid issues, right?
