The first surgeon recommended "the standard" -- removing the entire thyroid, giving my whole body so much radiation even hospital personnel would not be allowed in my room for days, requiring thyroid replacement drugs for the rest of my life, and discontinuing it once every six months, causing a twice-yearly depression. I ended up with only the part with the cancer lump removed, and therefore no radiation at all, and enough thyroid gland left to adjust and supply what I need -- so no medication, and no depression. Thyroid medication is notoriously tricky to get adjusted correctly -- but my own body has done it perfectly. This was in 2006 and I am still cancer-free. As the second surgeon said, "So you want to know what the extra risk is if you only have the cancer removed? None. Because if that doesn't work, you can still go back and so the standard treatment." Even I have to someday -- I have had six+ years of good health with no need for medications. My life would have been so much more difficult had I gone with the first surgeon's recommended "standard of care" treatment.
It was a lot more work -- at first. I took two weeks off work and studied my options. It would have been easier to just do what the surgeon said. But in the end, my quality of life is sooo much better than if I had not had this book to cheer me on and give me the courage and tools to find the best care for me.
UPDATE, May 2017 -- Still cancer free, still no meds, still feeling great! Still grateful this book gave me the guts to advocate for myself!
I find Dr. Oz's delivery so danged easy to digest and understand. I don't feel insulted by his delivery. I don't feel as if he's dumbing it down for me, because he assumes I'm a moron, and I don't feel like he swings the other direction and feels as if he has something to prove, so he writes so far above all our heads that the material becomes thick and difficult. This book reads effortlessly. And man, does he fill it full of things you should know, but never think about. I liked this book so much I started reading it aloud to my husband. My husband was impressed enough with the material and delivery that he was interested enough to read it with me. We read this aloud in our down time - while we're cooking dinner, or lounging around. It's helping us understand our bodies better, and take seriously the change we need to make to help ourselves live better. I don't care about living to see 100. I do care about living independently, and without crippling health problems for the time I am here. This book is our favorite health-related book. Oz is a charming guy. I'm thrilled with this purchase.
