Thyroid Cancer Survivor Ramona Tapia – 10 Years in Remission

Thyroid Cancer Survivor Ramona Tapia – 10 Years in Remission

by Reynaldo O Joson on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 9:51pm

Ms. Ramona Tapia was 28 years old in 2002 when I operated on her papillary thyroid carcinoma in Manila Doctors Hospital. The malignant tumor was 2.5 cm in its greatest diameter.  I did a subtotal thyroidectomy (total lobectomy, isthmectomy, and pyramidalectomy).  She was just on thyroid hormonal suppressive therapy for 7 years.  She discontinued the hormonal therapy three years ago. As of November, 2011, she is 38 years old, no clinical sign of recurrence, and going 10 years in remission by February, 2012.  We both thank God for this long remission.
