Hello.

I have a new doctor now and he offered me as an alternative to surgery (hot nodule) RAI treatment. The problem is that I have been researching about it on the web and found some pretty scary statements about possible side effects. I don't know what to think. My doctor says it is absolutely safe (?!). Actually I have talked to many doctors who said the same. If it depends only on my choice I will avoid this surgery, that's for sure. Who wouldn't avoid a neck surgery with general anesthesia?? However, what would happen to me a few months from now? I would appreciate any help you could give me, for I am really lost here. I have a decision to take (surgery or RAI) and there is little time left. The surgery is supposed to happen five weeks from today.

Well, if you could help me...
Thank you very much and God bless you all.
Crosby
