I'm a staff sergeant in the army and was serving a tour in iraq when i found a lump on the side of my neck. I had a CT done and thats when they found the nodule on my thyroid. I was evacuated to germany and had an FNA wich came back positive for papillary cancer. Any way that was a week ago and my throat hasnt stopped hurting since. Is that normal? I will be heading back to the states tomorrow to my wife and kids and to get my treatment started. Was also wondering about on average how long it takes folks to get back on there feet, still have 8 months left of a 15 month tour and I desperatly want to get back to my men as soon as possible. Any advice would be great.
