I have just received a call from my doctor that my thyroid scan (taken one week after an ablation dosage of I131) has come back showing some uptake in the thyroid area but nowhere else. The doctor said that this was normal. I go back to see him in three weeks and wonder what questions I should be asking him. Do I need to ask for another scan or can I just be monitored using blood work. Also, although it has been a month since my I131 treatment I am still not feeling great and struggle with feeling nauseau almost on a daily basis. Is this normal? I am also becoming more and more depressed about everything. I think that it is largely because I am trying to come to terms with living with cancer. I also wonder will it return and if it does where. I would appreciate hearing how others in the same situation are doing. I don;t know anyone personally who is going through the same thing. My two good friends who had cancer (other types) have both passed away within the last year.
Thanks for any imput or advice that you can give me.
