Post Thyroidectomy for Thyroid Cancer Follow up
Myself Raj had undergone Total Thyroidectomy 2021 and followed by Radioiodine Therapy (80 mcg) for Follicular and Papillary variant carcinoma in the same year -( Right lob had 1.5 cm of classic variant and left lob about 4 cm of encapsulated variant). The follow up Radioiodine scan (3mcg) was completed in June 2022. I do have every 3 months consultation with my endocrinologists and completed by Ultrasound on June 2023 (Report was clear with level 1 and 2 nodes which was not suspicious). Thyroglobulin levels measured without stopping the Thyroid medications is < 0.1 ng/mL
Wanted to clarify if Thyroglobulin hormone is measured by stopping Thyroid medication and also what is a generally recommended follow up care on the 2nd year - 3 year for such a case.
