Re: Questions before scan/RAI treatment

The reason for the sour candies is so you will salivate and get rid of the radiation because if concentrates in your salivary glands. I brought in the sour candies and did'nt take them because I felt fine but in the morning the sides of my neck hurt horribly and I had a bad headache. Drink lots of water and just suck on the sour candies. I'd hate for you to experience what I did.
