Re: Radioactive iodine ablation
Elaine Mooreo wrote a book about her Graves called "Graves Disease a practical guide". She had RAI and stayed radioactive for weeks and weeks. She worked in a lab and was contaminating everything, they put an x through her pic at the lab to stay out till she registered not radioactive! She wrote a book about it after jumping into RAI before she even knew anything about Graves. She's regretted it ever since. She said don't make any big decisions when you have this, cause your brain is screwed up from it and you would tend to make rash decisions before you take meds, you're in a hyper state. Did you know if you have this your spouse has a big chance of going hypo from you! I chose no RAI either, even though my doc didn't bring it up till I did. He keeps patients on low doses of meds for years,if you go into remission, then go back hyper, you can take the anti-thyroid meds again, he said.
