Re: Radioactive iodine or a thyroidectomy- please help???
Hi! What was the dose you were started on? Sometimes it's the dose that is too high that makes people think they're allergic. Some I've talked to have taken an antihistamine for it and creams,while taking the meds, the labs get better and then they can reduce the dose and they don't have the rash problems anymore. I'm not saying this would work for you, but maybe a lower dose could be tried? You can still have kids after RAI but you have to wait a year. Some have a lot of side effects after it, some not. I take the meds(2 years)and I am well controlled. In your case with your voice, surgery might be a little risky but not out of the question with an experienced surgeon who has done a LOT of them. Do some research on the meds and being allergic, ask around on other boards too.Good luck!
