radio active iodine treatment

My husband has had treatment for tonsil and thyroid cancer. Thyroidectomy tonsil carsenova removed reconstruction surgery,33 sessions of radiotherapy and 3 cycles of chemo. He is going into hospital for radio active iodine treatment and has stopped taking his thyroxine. Has anyone had this treatment?? Since stopping the thyroxine his appetite has increased 100%. we are told his extreme treatment has been curative... 12 hours of surgery. No sexual desire.
He is 48 years old and has lost 4 and a half stone.
