Dagmar Seibertová – Pardubice (thyroid disease)

In 2014 my thyroid was removed, but I continued to feel very tired. The next assessment revealed follicular lymphoma where the thyroid used to be. I underwent an operation followed by radiotherapy. I used Penoxal for the entire period and was very happy with it. Doctors were worried during the therapy that I would suffer from a loss of appetite and weight loss. But thanks to Penoxal my appetite was good and I felt good. For the next two years I am going to have the biological therapy and I intend to use Penoxal throughout.

 

Chemotherapy and biological therapy

I started using Penoxal after having problems with the thyroid which was removed due to its enlargement and a persistent fatigue. After the thyroid problems I was diagnosed follicular lymphoma, then chemotherapy followed, six cycles every three weeks, and now I continue with the biological therapy every two months for the next two years.

 

Health with Penoxal

I was on Penoxal twice daily throughout the chemotherapy and now I continue with it while on the biological therapy, but I take one tablet a day as prevention. During chemo I was a bit tired, but had no loss of appetite and I think I ate without any problems throughout. During chemo I fell ill only once as pneumonia cropped up nearby. I was ill during Christmas, but otherwise my health was good, and this was a success.

 

Evaluation and recommendations

My experience with Penoxal is very good, so I continue taking it. If anybody including my family fell ill, I would recommend Penoxal straight away. Consequences of chemo could have been worse without Penoxal, because most patients were sick, they lost appetite, and I was OK I think. My doctor was surprised I did not lose weight. I have always been slim, so my doctor worried that chemo would make me sick, it would have to be altered, diluted or repeated, but I managed well without any problems.
