Re: Thyroid cancer and RAI
You can have the surgery, go on thyroid hormone medicine, and then prep for RAI when you come home and schedule it for a few weeks after your return.
Thyroid cancer is very slow growing, and the surgery itself usually takes care of the cancer, and the RAI just ensures that all thyroid tissue is destroyed so it won't grow back. My endo. offered me the option of waiting, (I didn't) so I know it's not anything that's dangerous, talk to your doctor about it, and have a great time in Europe!
