Yay! I got my results back and I seem to be fine for now. There still is weird growth or whatever in a left gland. I wish that they would just take it out. I have made this request before. With all the other surgeries that I’ve had, I’m getting covered in scars…so what’s one more?

Anyway, I’m just going to copy & paste my results here –

INDICATION: Thyroid carcinoma post thyroidectomy
TECHNIQUE: 2.4 mCi I-123 was ingested by the patient, and 24-hour neck uptake
and whole body planar imaging performed.
COMPARISON: [Fall]/2017

FINDINGS: 24-hour uptake is 0.7% in the region of the neck, equivalent to
background levels and decreased from 1.3% previously. No evidence of recurrĀ  entor metastatic thyroid cancer. Activity in the nasopharynx, salivary glands,stomach, colon, and urinary bladder from normal routes of iodine excretion.

Activity in the left parotid gland remains somewhat asymmetrically prominent.Faint radio tracer uptake about the knees consistent with synovitis.
