Re: Questions before scan/RAI treatment

No, RAI doesn't hurt. I got a little nausea, but I think it came from being so hypo. I also was a little sore around my neck.

You have to be as secluded as possible from other adults for 3 days, and for a week, not have extended contact, and stay at least 6 feet away during that time whenever possible. Depending upon your dosage, you are like an x-ray machine that is on. Each day gets less and less. The place you are having the scan at must give you directions.

The symptoms of hypo will be similar to those that many on this board have---fatigue, aches, hard to move and get around, but it's only short term.

Let us know how it goes!
