2nd RAI here I come
Well, I knew it was going to happen, just hoping my Tg would somehow go down in time.
It is still 22.7 so I am scheduled for another round of I-131 on March 14th.
I've stopped my meds and started LID. My doc does not use Thyrogen, so I'm doing it the hard way.
Gonna try to work through the end of next week. Hopefully I can stay focused enough to make it. I have a high stress, very demanding position.
I have to be honest, I'm a little scared. Not for the process, but for the Reason behind it. I was hoping to have all of this behind me by now! Of course I'm not looking forward to going hypo, the LID, and the hospital isolation and all that follows.
It took me six weeks to crawl out of the hypo hole last time. I also had a big dose of I-131 which made me pretty sick. 209 mCi's. I'll know my dosage on the 28th of this month when I go see the Nuke Med doc.
So, after all the waiting and hoping at least I have a plan, right? I did it before, I can do it again! It just better work this time!
