Emma Haldane undergoes thyroid surgery: 'I feel good' |

Mama Profile Emma Haldane wrote in a blog post that she is currently on sick leave with a hypothyroidism.

“In mid-February, I discovered a lump in my neck. It was barely visible, but you could feel it when you put your hand on your neck. It wasn't embarrassing or in terms of being able to eat or anything, so I felt it with my hand on my neck. And then “I was subjected to many tests and samples were taken.”

“Yes, just the word tumor is scary to me. And even though I now know that all lumps are called tumors, worry, worry, or tears were never far away throughout this process. Image: private

Emma needed to undergo an ultrasound scan, puncture tests and a meeting at the Endocrine Oncology Department in Karolinska where it was concluded that it would be best to undergo surgery and remove half of the thyroid gland to analyze the nodules.

“Yes, just the word tumor is scary to me. And even though I now know that all lumps are called tumors, worry, worry, or tears were never far away throughout this process.

The surgeon was a superhero

Now the procedure is complete and Emma says she was very nervous beforehand. But the surgeon's composure reassured her.

“She was wearing a long blue shirt open over her cape, which was billowing behind her like a cape as she walked. Superhero.”

A few hours after the operation, when Emma woke up and started to feel like a human again, the surgeon came and told me that everything had gone well. What was supposed to be gone is now gone.

The process went well, and what was supposed to go away, is now gone.  Now Emma is waiting for answers from the analysis.The process went well, and what was supposed to go away, is now gone.  Now Emma is waiting for answers from the analysis.

“It's a relief. Even though I'm now waiting for answers from the test, I feel calmer than I did before the operation. So grateful for the wonderful medical care I received.”

Thyroid examination

Thyroid hormone is needed in all organs and cells of the body, and it can be said that it acts as a “gas and brake for metabolism.” Producing too little hormones is called hypothyroidism, and producing too many hormones is called hyperthyroidism.

The thyroid gland, which produces the hormone, is located on the neck, at the level of the larynx. Control is done from the pituitary gland (a gland located just below the brain) and from the hypothalamus (in the brain). The pituitary gland and hypothalamus sense the level of thyroid hormone and in response send a TSH signal through the bloodstream to the thyroid gland which produces and releases more or less hormone. Normally, this balance is strict, as TSH in the pituitary gland causes the appropriate amount of hormone to be released from the thyroid in the form of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

Emma wrote in another post that her mother has been living with them since Thursday last week to help take care of the two children, Elliot, 5, and Adele, 1.5.

“I'm forever grateful for that, it wouldn't have been possible without her. I can't lift heavy things and I can't bend forward. The kind of thing you do with young children right?? Everything is going in the right direction, yesterday the swelling was so small you can start.” In feeling my collarbones again. Swallowing becomes easier every day, and speaking becomes easier soon I will be Get back on track “But now I'll just rest.”
