My 20 yr old daugther who has early stage papillary Thryoid cancer with slight lymph node pathology on two of 4 nodes, had RA 131 on 12/18. The uptake way mysterious and they decided it was either thyroid stunning which RARELY (only one docummented case ever)occurred from her RA123 next day R131 (150 mc) OR it was a fast transit and may not have done the job. They are not sure so they are doing TSH, thyroglobolin, T3, T4, calcium, today (6 wks post RA131)to see how high the numbers are. AND the are doing a baseline ultrasound this week. The nuclear med doc presented her case to a tumor board mtg at his university today and they agreed very unusual fast transit appeared. SO, he said we could do another RA131 without a prescan in June (6 months) or in a year. IF the TSH is between 30-50 and Thyrogloboin is over 5 in June 6 wks off meds and hypo. IF those numbers are still high, he will do another treatment.
