Wow, Dina, I just Googled this and it doesn't look like it is a pleasant thing. Is he having pain from it? I'm glad you are getting a second opinion just to be sure this is the right diagnosis and course of treatment. It's always scary to have a child require surgery. Will he have to have his thyroid monitored regularly after this? Please keep us posted and tell him there are lots of people thinking of him.

I just got off the phone with our "daughter". She called yesterday to say that her belly button was sore (no she doesn't have a piercing) and she went to the doctor who kind of laughed at her that she would come at the first sign of pain and swelling there. She was told by said doctor it could be part of one of the cold viruses that is going around (not serious) or to do with her reproductive system (serious when told to a 24 year old!) and no treatment was given.

Today it is full of puss, she cant get her pants done up and couldn't lived three trays at work (Mickey D's and she is a strong hard worker). We are now taking her to emergency to see if we can get better answers. She is also scared out of her mind that is something serious and, that she will lose her new job for taking time off. Please pray.

Ouch, hope it is nothing serious. I hate it when doctors act like that. I have taken the stance of telling them back, "OK Doogie if you are done playing doctor now, I would appreciate it if you could send a real one in."
They usually flip a bunch of attitude but it does work. Since I spend so much time at the hospital and/or doctors office I am constantly filling out the surveys. I take them very seriously and always let em know just exactly what I think of some of these guys...
