Re: Radiation exposure

Hi Fam - Just thought I'd share the little I know. I had RAI for thyroid cancer a little over 2 weeks ago. There were several precautions I was given for my dose of 152 millicuries. I'm not familiar with the measurement of "uci" that you mention? I'll let other more experienced folks respond, as I'm sure they will, but just thought I'd offer my 2 cents

As for the scan, they gave me a tracer dose of 2 millicuries a few days prior to the large dose. There were no precautions for that dose. Sorry for your concerns. I look forward to other folks responding
