It seems that I'm lost and I need advice. I got my TT on April 13th 2009 and RAI on May same year. Now finally after a year and half I get to prepare for my whole body scan. The problem I'm facing is that none of my doctors told me that despite I don't have any more cancer I need to go under RAI, when I asked the tech the reasons she just told me that it'll be "only" 3 milicuries for diagnosis. Why is that?? I was told by my Onco after the first RAI and first whole body scan than I was cured, and now for my first year follow up I need to go all over again?? I've tried to reach my Onco but he's out the city for the next two weeks. =(
Besides, you know what it feels when we need to be without medication, the diet, the mood swings, the feeling of loneliness, the feeling when you're on isolation after RAI, the rest of many symptoms, to be told by your love ones that "it's all on your head"?. The only one that stills very supportive is my boyfriend, but yet I need information.
In this part of my journey (after CA diagnosis) is the first time I feel so lost, because the lack of information. Excuse my English, is not my first language.
Thanks for your time and Be WELL.
