I recently had the left side of my thyroid removed, found out it was cancerous, and a week later had the right side taken out. I am planning on doing the radioactive iodine treatment in Februaury '06. Can anyone give me insight as to just how tired/weak I'll be during the 2 weeks prior to treatment when I go off the Cytomel? Will I still be able to work? I'm currently taking Cytomel twice a day and am finding that an afternoon nap is a neccessity.
Also, this low-iodine diet is freaking me out b/c my kitchen is being remodeled and I eat out for every meal. Any suggestions on things to eat that don't require an oven would be helpful! (I've got a microwave, but thats it) I have a feeling this is going to make it a whole lot rougher. Thanks!
