Back to the doctor at Lakeview Imaging, he firstly mentioned a cold nodule and gravely reminded me that they cannot tell from these scans whether cold nodules we cancerous but also that it is not likely. I got the impression I had a cold nodule. But after receiving all the tests that were faxed the report he wrote says no such thing. You can see for yourself below.
I left about an hour and a half later. I was only in the scan room for about 20 minutes and I went in on time first to get the "stuff" injected into a vein like they would use for a blood test. Painless.
The advantage about getting thyroid tests faxed was that I got to see one of the tests I was not expecting to find out about until going to Noosaville on the 31st. TSH antibodies. The trouble is that he saw no hot nodules so in the results below that mentions an autonomous acting nodule you would think that it would show "hot". In the results below it cannot be the other option re medication because I am not on any. It seems I don't really know why I am hyperthyroid. I still have to wait till 31st. I am not sure what a toxic goitre is in the absence of any disease like Grave's or Hashimoto's. Isn't this an endocrinologist's domain?
I got another surprise when I stopped at the pharmacy on my way home to get yesterday's prescriptions filled. The neurontin even in generic form at this the lowest dose is $17.85 which is not the concession rate. Let's hope it doesn't work???? Strange thing to say but if it is going to give me side effects like its cousin Lyrica then I won't be taking it long.
I have taken half an Endep tonight or less since I could not split the pill evenly. If it is like any other tri-cyclic I have tried I could be dopey all day tomorrow so if I am not around you'll know why. He told me to take it at 6pm but I forgot until 6.30 and now I am drowsy enough to go to bed. It is used for pain but being drowsy has not eased up my aching legs. It is probably used for quality of sleep too. For some reason I can't remember. Goodnight.
