I’m in recovery mode tonight. Earlier today I had to go to the hospital for a thyroid biopsy. I’ve had thyroid biopsies before and normally it’s not that bad, but this time my neck is pretty sore. It’s swollen too. I think everything is ok though – I’m certainly keeping an eye on things.
The irony of the situation is that I’m supposed to have a thyroid biopsy every 6 months but because my doctors be very slow this “6 month check up” has taken almost two years! Hopefully the results are benign again. If they are I’ll buy my doctor some cohiba cigars dominican as a gift … well maybe not … I have been waiting a long time to have this test done.
I think I’ll go and get an icepack to put on the side of my neck. It sort of feels like a cross between a sore throat (it hurts a bit to swallow) and pulled neck muscles, so I’m sure the cold pack will help a bit.
