the drink is normaly less than a glass of water and its basicaly is water it self.

never heard of it scaring... they also can do it in a pill form.

but remember iodine is water soluable.

Well, I found out the scarring is probably from the hiatus hernia...

Hi MoMomsa,

My thyroid was removed in Feb. 2010 and I continued to have "pressure" (feeling as if someone is pushing on my throat)for about a year. I think it's scarring from the thyroidectomy. It's back again and I can't figure out why. Are you experiencing pressure?
