I had the right side of my thyroid taken out 9/22, the left 10/15. Cancer on both sides. I'm getting Thyrogen Monday and Tuesday and then RAI Wed.
Because I have a child and only 1 bathroom in my house I'm spending a night in the hospital.
Does anyone know if it will effect my child? The doctor keeps telling me no, but I'm very nervous. I read somewhere online that kids who were exposed to RAI have a higher chance of getting Thyroid Cancer. My mom had thyroid cancer and RAI 25 years ago, and I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my cancer. What about preparing food for others? The doctors keep telling me that I'm safe once I leave the hospital but I'm very nervous. I just want to protect my family.
Any advice would be great!
