    Incision looks very, very good. Within a year it likely will not even be noticeable unless someone is very, very close. Any word on whether she will need any follow on cancer therapy?

    Won't know for sure until she meets with her endocrinologist in December. Might need radioactive iodine but nothing saying it'll be necessary at this point...

    Good news! Radioactive iodine not necessary at this point. Still has low level "markers" but the doc says it may be due to her surgery being relatively recent.

    Will check again in six months and determine course. If all goes well, she'll have yearly visits to the endocrinologist just to keep tabs and check her thyroid hormone and calcium levels for any necessary adjustments to her medication!
