Thyroid Cancer Survivor N. Arbis – 11 Years in Remission

Ms. N. Arbis was 44 years old in 2005 when she underwent subtotal thyroidectomy, right, at Manila Doctors Hospital.  The histopathology report showed papillary thyroid carcinoma.  In 2006, neck nodes were seen on the right side.  A selective neck dissection showed 3 positive metastatic thyroid carcinomas.  She was placed on levothyroxine therapy.  In 2014, when she underwent completion thyroidectomy but the nodules on the left remaining lobe were benign.  She is now 11 years old in remission counting from the first operation in 2005.  We both thank God for this long remission.  Ms. Arbis gave her consent to publish her story in order to serve as an inspiration to others.
