Hi all, Im new to this site and I wont go into my whole story as its long and very complicated!!!
But Im about to have my third round of RAI and I have now been off my medication for 2 1/2 week and other than cold i dont feel like i have the past three times i was off it. In the past i was practically passed out constantly and felt horrible. This time however Im no more tired than the average single mum of three kids under 6!!!
Last scan done at treatment #2 showed a large uptake in the base of the Thyroid so either its residual tissue still(which the docs assured me they got all the Thyroid) or cancer grown back/spread.
My concern is that im not feeling super hyperthyroid and wondering if that indicates there is something in there...
probably just a bit of a wait and see thing i suppose but as a single mother of three young kids i dont wanna find out that my levels are not low enough and treatment has to be delayed cause honestly, we have all had enough of it!!
Think i just wanted to vent that out to people who would understand!
