Re: help with radiation question
The radiation damages the thyroid cells and as they die the "dump" their stores of thyroid hormone into the blood stream. This "dumping" can make the person MORE hyperthyroid while it is happening. This *could* be what is happening to her.
After the dumping she will most likely turn HYPOthyroid and need replacement hormone.
