I was recently dignosed with papillary thyroid cancer and have had a total thyroidectomy. I am getting ready to schedule my RAI treatment and I am debating using thyrogen to prepare for this versus stopping cytomel and going hypothyroid. I know this is an approved use for thyrogen in Europe, but not yet FDA approved for this use in the US. My endocrinologist has proposed this as a viable and (in his opinion) potentially equally effective option. Has anyone else out there gone through this decision process? Help..this is overwhelming.
