What is inpatient RAI 131 like?

Hi! I had a total thyroidectomy and neck dissection for papillary cancer 5 weeks ago, and now I am waiting for inpatient RAI at the start of June. I am frustrated by the wait, but where I live there is only one facility in the city (not the USA). I am to go off thyroxine for 4 weeks and take T3 for the first 2 weeks of that. I would like to know what to expect for the whole time and would be grateful of any responses, hints and recommendations as I don't know anybody who has been through this. I am still quite tired from the surgery (5.5 hours) but improving! Thank you.
