Thanks so much for your responses...I really love this board. You guys are really helping to educate me with the appropriate "artilery" to meet with my doctors!
I had my first appointment with my regular endocrin, post surgery, today...found out that my mass was 2.1cm, so she's recommending the RAI. I'm to meet with the Radiation Oncology dr next week Tuesday for consultation. In the meantime, she's prescribed Cytomel tablet 25 mcg, 2x a day. This will be taken until the radiologist tells me to stop before the RAI. She also told me that I'd be living "hypo" for about 2 weeks before the procedure...as well as living the low-iodine diet for the same amount of time. I'm about to do my research on low-iodine eating now...gotta love the net!!
My endocrin indicated that she thinks the dosage will be about 100 for the ablation, but the radiologist will tell me for sure. I asked the question of increased breast cancer risk and she said she's heard no such thing, but that leukemia can be a side effect for high dosage (500+). Any one have any light on other side effects other than possible nausea and salivary gland swell?
Again, thanks sooo much for your responses, and I hope to get to know all of you guys!!
