Do I need a second opinion

I had a total thyroidectomy in Dec and they found cancer, I had the I-131 RAI and then the body scan. When the results came back they noticed some of the Radiation went to my left lung where they think the cancer might have gone to.. (the cancer was on the lft side) they had me do a chest x-ray which was clear.

Im having chest pains, my legs hurt, my feet and legs get constant cramps, I get the feeling that my legs cant hold my body

Im not sure what to do, before I had the surgery I had a biopsey on my neck and they results came back benign. I went with my gut and wanted to get it taken care of

any ideas would be helpful

Thank you
