I had a complete thyroidectomy 25 years ago to treat

Patient : I had a complete thyroidectomy 2.5 years ago to treat thyroid cancer. The cancerous portion was just small enough to not need radiation. I'm on 200 synthroid and calcitrol and calcium as 2 parathyroid a were accidentally removed. Suddenly, in the last 2 weeks, my hair started falling out again, which I haven't experienced since I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Does this mean my thyroid cancer might be reoccurring?
