I've gone through the whole process, RAI, 9 month follow up thyrogen injections, etc. I had the RAI in July, and started getting painful swollen parotid glands in December. It seems like a ways off for that to be a side effect of the RAI, but maybe?
The weird thing is that it will come and go for weeks at a time. This last time I had it, I couldn't close my teeth together, and it got bad enough to where I couldn't even open my mouth big enough for a finger to fit in..or close it for that matter.
Does this sound normal for anyone going through this?? I can understand swollen salivary glands, but this seems worse.
