Thyroid Cancer Survivor Lucia Desembrana – 22 Years in Remission

Ms. Lucia Desembrana is a thyroid cancer survivor.  She was 31 years old when I operated on her thyroid nodule which turned out to be a follicular carcinoma on histopathology.   July 20, 1989, I did a subtotal thyroidectomy- total lobectomy, right;  isthmusectomy; pyramidalectomy; and subtotal lobectomy, left.  After the operation, she has been taking thyroid hormones for suppressive therapy, up to the present.  As of check-up today, August 4, 2011, there is no sign of recurrence.  Thus, she is now 22 years in remission.  We both thank God for this remission.
