I am new to all of this! I am a 34 mother of two - 10 months and 3 1/2 years old. My surgery was 3 weeks ago. They found a very small nodule on the right side of my thyroid during a physical in May and that was ruled very suspicous at biopsy and then ruled papillary cancer during my surgery. I am working on scheduling my I 131 and wondering how long I should plan to be away from the two kids after the treatment! I talked with Nuclear Med at the hospital today and they were a little to vague for me. 24 hours in isolation and then not to be cuddling with them but I could be in the house with them..... Any insight is appreciated!
