I am headed back home tomorrow after being in a hotel room for 3 days.I know we are supposed to still be careful for about a week after but can I get close to my 12 lb. doggie. when I go back home?
I have recently have found out I alos have thyroid cancer and was wondering how the rai tratment works and if you have to do it in a hospital or can you do it at home?
I'm about to go in for my rai treatment on Nov. 18th and according to New York State I have to stay in the hospital until the radiation level in my body gets down low enough to be safely around other people. All though my oncologist did tell me that there are places who do send you home the same day. So I guess it all depends on where you live and who your oncologist is. I know that I will be in the hospital for 2-4 days and then when I get home I can't be around little children or pregnant women and only in the company of others for an hour the first 3 days home, after that I'm allowed to be around others for 3 hours at a time for 2 weeks. I hope this has helped you. Take care and good luck.
