Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I had a total thyroidectomy on 9/19 for folliculr carcinoma minimally invasive. they never started me on synthroid because they were waiting for the path report. i had my first whole body scan yesterday which showed there is still some tissue (probably normal thyroid tissue according to them) in the neck area but no spread to other parts of the body.

im going in this monday morning for RAI. ill be in isolation in the hospital for 48 hours after i recieve my dose of 150. they didnt give me the option of doing this at home. im kind of glad since i really dont have an apartment that i could section off. i think im going to my parents house to stay for a week. their house is much bigger and mom has offered me the upstairs. good luck to you.
