Last night I was told by my endocrinologist that my thyroid cancer which has be surgically treated and gone for the last two years has returned. Please let me know if the stress of nursing school
is so bad that I will not be able to treatment and follow up for my thyroid cancer recurrence. I am enrolled in some prereqs this summer including micro but I am hoping to be finished with the worst of the treatment before my clinicals begin but I will still have to get regular lab tests and radioactive iodine scans during the two years. On the other hand I can't place my life on hold forever. I am also wondering if thyroid cancer may possibly give the nursing school a reason not to accept me into the program.
