I am about to have the RAI done, and I'm a little confused. I understand what is involved, but I am having a hard time explaining it to family and friends. They keep asking me if it is radiation? Is it, technically? Am I having radiation done? Or is this RAI not considered radiation? The only terms people seem to be familiar with are "radiation" and "chemo". Am I going to go through radiation? Please help me understand!
