I have had it twice now and my theme song during both was:
I had the radioactive iodine twice. Once last year after my surgery and then again this year because my thyrogen test came back with a level of 9.1.
I had 150 mcg each time. I felt a lot worse this last time and I looked all puffy and stuff. I didn't feel good for over a week. All I can hope is that it killed off all the remaining stuff. When I had the scan done, it showed uptake in my ovary for the second time! Very odd!
What is difficult is that normal thyroid tissue and cancerous stuff gives off the same thing so they don't really know which.
Either way, it had better be done!!
Good luck! You will feel lots better once the thyroid meds kick in!
