I am having Radioactive Iodine therapy on the 29th of this month. My endocrinologist informed me that following my therapy, I would need to stay in the hospital or a similar facility for 3 days, to avoid radiation exposure to family/friends because we only have 1 bathroom at home. However, the secretary at the nuclear medicine department of my local hospital said it wasn't necessary for me to stay in a hospital room, but to discuss it with the doctor when I come in for my scan. Did anyone else have to do this, and if so, what was the experience like?
