Should I remove other half of my thyroid in order to do Tg bloodtest?
I would love to help you, but after they removed the first half of my thyroid and got the results back from the samples of the other half that half too was cancerous. So a month later it was removed. Good luck with your decision and God Bless

I had the first surgery and they found a small cancer. They wanted to wait and see if the cancer returned. One hospital wanted that. Went for second opinion and they wanted to remove all of the thyroid. I went for the second surgery and never had to worry about cancer returning. My second surgery was done by a surgeon who did rentries 8 times a month. It actually was a more painless surgery the second time. Never had a problem afterwards
