Figures. You go in to find out your heart is fine only to find out something else is going on. Meds nowadays are different than they used to be so hopefully your dr. can put you on meds that will help you now and ensure your fertility later on. Just sent up a prayer for your health. Thanks for the update, angel. :-)

Oh you poor thing, so young to go through all this, I really do hope things work out for you, I guess you can look at the positive side and think it could have been worse as what you have seems to be fixable, never give up on future children I believe if you are meant to have then you will have them no matter what, good luck to you I hope everything works out ok for you....

Sorry to hear about your suspected goiter. Anyway, I am glad that your heart is okay. It's a bit disappointing if there is a possibility that you wont be able to have a baby anymore because of this but just keep on hoping. There is nothing impossible when a person believes. I hope all will go well with you in all aspects of your life.

i thought goiter was a lack of iodine in your systme as we never hear of this disease in the US but what do I know? i am a nurse with a purse..but i digress..gointers are something we don't see much of in these neck of the woods..but my blood work was great today..but i am a little dehydrated..duh..as i fasted for 12 hours on the second series of test..and the nurse told me i did not have to fast..but i told her it does a body good to go without food...for 12 hours or more..but i did eat a great breakfast and the food never tasted better I will pray that your have a complete recovery and that your family is also given a special Blessing..God Bless you and yours

Hi angel Im so to hear you might have goiter. What the heck is it? I have heard of it but I dont know what it is. Im glad you heart is doing good. And you probably should continue resting.I wouldnt worry about having children at the moment you must take care of your health first. You take care and keep us informed. Hugs to you.

Hi Terry, goiter is a sickness where in you lack iodine and then your neck will swell up like you have an adams apple or more bigger than that..so far my neck is not that swelled up..it is hereditary and i got it from an aunt who also had this years back..thank you Terry, i will keep you posted

Hi angel, Here's my "what's up" to you. ;) I'm so happy to hear that your heart is okay, very good news. I am sorry to know that you might have a thyroid problem, though. I will continue to lift you up in my prayers, and hope that you won't have to suffer the same fertility problems as your aunt. But whatever happens, your well being must be paramount to you and your family; they need you. :) Hugs! -santuccie P.S.: Laughing at dumb jokes is still good for your health!!!
