  • uh she took a look at my neck um you  could see the tumor i don't know why  

  • i hadn't noticed it sooner i the first doctor in  japan made me feel so stupid for not coming in  

  • sooner it was like why didn't you notice this it's  huge how are you not noticing this until now and  

  • now like looking back at the  footage of it before my surgery  

  • yeah it's very obvious but like i guess you don't  look at your neck like that i don't know it was  

  • kind of like under my under my chin area and you  really only notice it when you're swallowing and  

  • looking at it so i don't know all these years that  it's probably been in there and i didn't notice it  

  • they told me that it's about the size of  a mandarin orange it's just so weird to me  

  • um but the surgeon asked me to stand up and  she'd made little markings on my neck of  

  • where she would do the incision i told her not to  worry too much about what it looks like i really  

  • don't care i told her to just do her job i'm only  worried about my health i don't care how it looks  

  • aesthetically if i have a big scar there  so be it it'll probably look cool whatever  

  • and she was like no i care how it looks i'm going  to position it in a place so that it's in like  

  • a fold a wrinkle in your neck so that  it won't be too obvious once it heals  

  • my sister was with me by the way can't thank  her enough i would not have been able to go  

  • through this whole thing alone it would have  been hell so it was so nice to have her there  

  • um just through the whole thing she helped me  feel not as nervous and she was really really  

  • helpful like asking the nurses questions thatmight have forgotten and preparing everything and  

  • looking up info for taxis and stuff um yeah i owe  her so much thank you shea you're amazing i've had  

  • one two three surgeries wherehad to go under general anesthetic  

  • so i have experience with it before but it still  kind of freaks me out i don't know there's always  

  • the risk that you'll die or you'll not go to sleep  properly you'll be awake during your surgery or  

  • something horrible like that i don't know you hear  these horror stories so i was a little nervous but  

  • i felt really grateful that i was able to make  the trip to america to see this specialist so  

  • overall i was pretty happy to be there and then  they wheeled me into the surgery room and uh the  

  • nurses there were all super nice one of the nurses  came over she said it's party time here's your  

  • party hat she put on a hair net and now it's  time for cocktails i guess she plugged in the  

  • anesthetic and that's the last thing i remember  and then i woke up which felt like a second later  

  • and i was lying in bed and there was a male nurse  trying to wake me up and you could tell that  

  • he was getting a little like fed up with waiting  for me to wake up and all i remember him saying  

  • was god we've been trying to wake you up for  ages you just you just wouldn't wake up and  

  • i was just so groggy at that point i was so  confused there was another patient like on  

  • the other side of the room screaming and um yeah  he was thrilled to finally see me opening my eyes  

  • they wheeled me back into my my private room  and the nurse came in to see me and she asked  

  • me how i was feeling i said i wasn't really in  any pain or anything i was able to talk okay  

  • that's one of the risks of thyroid surgery is  that they can damage your vocal cords in the  

  • process and some people lose their voice or have  their voice damaged permanently it was kind of a  

  • relief to wake up and try talking and have it work  okay my voice was a little raspier than usual but  

  • yeah i could talk all right and the nurse asked  how i was feeling i said you know i wasn't in any  

  • in much pain or anything i just felt really  nauseous i get nauseous really easily and she  

  • was like okay let's go over to the bathroom andmade it like two steps that i puked all over her  

  • it's horrible it was really embarrassing um i'm  sure they're used to it but i felt really bad  

  • everybody was so nice and i just felt so bad  to puke on her the surgeon told me that the  

  • surgery went very well they removed the tumor  they also removed two of my lymph nodes that  

  • are located behind the thyroid i believe because  those are the first lymph nodes that the cancer  

  • will spread to so they wanted to remove those  and have those sent off to the lab for testing  

  • to make sure that nothing had spread and i would  be getting those results in about a week or so  

  • they would phone me i was actually able to go back  to my hotel in florida like right away i think  

  • i woke up from surgery and maybe an hour laterdon't know if time was processing properly for me  

  • but it felt like maybe an hour after surgery i was  already heading back to my hotel i was able to eat  

  • properly which was cool i thought after having  surgery on my throat i wouldn't be able to eat  

  • or it would be extremely painful or something but  yeah it felt like normal i was able to drink and  

  • eat solid foods and there were no issues there  at all and i felt really good the first day  

  • but then when i woke up in the morning from  the second day i felt like i was hit by a bus  

  • or something my lungs were so painful this whole  like chest area was really painful i wasn't  

  • expecting that i thought my neck was gonna kill me  but i didn't even notice that and i was coughing  

  • up blood it was just a mess my sister contacted  the nurse and was like she's coughing up blood is  

  • that okay and they said it's a normal thing that  happens after surgery because while you're asleep  

  • they put a breathing tube into your lungs so you  can breathe under anesthetic um and sometimes  

  • that will cause irritation and you'll be coughing  up some stuff for a few days after your surgery so  

  • yeah the hardest part was really just the pain  in my lungs and getting up and walking around  

  • was so hard it's really really painful but  honestly that's my fault because i decided  

  • not to take the prescription pain meds that  they uh prescribed for me they sounded really  

  • strong and scary and i was like i'll be fine  but yeah i was in a lot of pain for about  

  • five days i want to say and then it started to  get a little better each day and i could like  

  • see the light at the end of the tunnel um it's  been about a week and a half now and i would  

  • say the pain is probably about 90 percent gone it  still hurts when i move my neck this is about the  

  • full range of motion i have i can't look overcan't like look behind um and i can't tilt my head  

  • back but in general i feel good no pain in my body  or anything anymore it's just a little awkward  

  • to sleep and i have to be careful when i'm like  looking around not to turn my head too much yeah  

  • so after resting in florida for two more nights  i think two or three more nights um we took our  

  • flight back to canada three flights back to canada  and i've just been at home resting with my family  

  • it's been really good to see them even though  this whole trip just happened out of nowhere and  

  • i wasn't planning on seeing anybody of course it's  really nice to be back here with my family after a  

  • very long one week wait a couple days ago i heard  back from the hospital they had my lab results  

  • and the tumor came back non-cancerous it was just  a really big random ass tumor that wasn't cancer  

  • i tested my lymph nodes they tested the tumor  and they didn't find anything so they told me  

  • yeah i'm good to go i only have half a thyroid  left now and hopefully the other half that wasn't  

  • destroyed by the tumor will be able to function  on its own and produce the hormones that my body  

  • needs to survive you need your thyroid so if it  can't handle producing those hormones on its own  

  • i will need to take some hormonal supplements  to make up for that but the surgeon said  

  • there is a chance that it'll be okay and she's  actually confident that it will be okay because  

  • the right side of my thyroid had been just taken  over by the tumor and it wasn't working anyways  

  • so the left side of my thyroid had been doing all  the work for who knows how long now it could have  

  • been years really and my thyroid hormone levels  were perfect so yeah there's a chance i might not  

  • need medication but it's kind of hard to tell  in a couple months i have to go for a checkup  

  • at a doctor in japan and just see if all  my levels are okay and hopefully it is  

  • because i've heard that it can be really tough  trying to balance your thyroid hormones out with  

  • medication it can be a bit of a struggle getting  the right balance because everybody's different  

  • so fingers crossed so if any of you guys out  there happen to be going through something similar  

  • honestly thyroid problems are so much more  common than i had any idea about i had no idea  

  • after doing lots of research and watching hundreds  of vlogs of people going through something similar  

  • it really made me realize how common it is  so i wouldn't be surprised if one of you  

  • is going through something similar if you want  to ask me any questions about my surgery or yeah  

  • just anything anything i can help share with you  about this experience leave some comments for me  

  • i would be very happy to help you out but yeah  that's where we are do you want to see my sick  

  • scar it looks kind of gross because it's not  healed yet so if that's not your kind of thing  

  • then maybe don't watch the end of the video um  but this is what it looks like now they didn't  

  • use stitches they actually use like a surgical  glue so on top of the incision you can see this  

  • kind of like grayish stuff that's glue that should  fall off between two weeks and three weeks after  

  • surgery so i'm just kind of waiting for that to  fall off but i think it looks like it's healing  

  • nicely i want to say it doesn't look overly like  bumpy or anything so i feel like once it's healed  

  • maybe it won't be too big of this car but like  i said i really i don't mind i don't really care  

  • too much about stuff like that um might be kind of  annoying to have people comment on it all the time  

  • and ask what the hell it is that would probably  be the only reason that i don't want to have a  

  • big scar across my neck but hopefully lots of  people will watch this video and then they'll  

  • know what's up but yeah that's been my past three  months how have you guys been i really hope you're  

  • having a nice fall and you're enjoying fall and  your life hasn't been a [ __ ] show like mine but  

  • i will be back to japan in two weeks from now and  hopefully i'll be feeling really good and able to  

  • make videos again i really missed you guys i was  really really sad about all this because i was so  

  • excited about making content about my new city and  exploring sentai but we can make that happen uh  

  • in november when i get back to japan but they're  gonna make me quarantine for two weeks when i  

  • get back so i'll get back to japan and then i'll  have to quarantine for two weeks and then we can  

  • go explore fingers crossed nothing else happens in  the meantime and we can actually do it this time  

  • honestly if i'm ever not making videos it's never  because i don't want to it's it's always because  

  • something [ __ ] has happened and i'm unable to  so yeah if you don't hear from me for a while  

  • i'm probably just going through something and i'll  be back i really like making videos for you guys  

  • so if something's keeping me from it it's  frustrating me as well and i'll be back as soon as  

  • possible trust me um but yeah i guess that's it um  like i said if you have any questions for me about  

  • this experience if i can help you out in any way  leave them down below and i'll see you guys again  

  • very soon hopefully from japan next  time i might make a video here in canada  

  • i don't know would you want to see that  um my friend kelsey is coming to visit me  

  • from america and we're gonna hang out for a bit  while i'm here so that'll be fun maybe we could  

  • do something together let me know if you'd be  up for that and i'll talk to you guys very soon

  • you

uh she took a look at my neck um you  could see the tumor i don't know why
