Hi I'm new. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in March, then had a TT in May and had thyrogen injections the past two days and received my RAI today. The dr. said I was getting 50 which is only 1/3 of the typical dose. He was kind of "whatever" about the regulations and kept saying "don't pee on anyone." He told me to drink a ton, pee a ton, and suck on sour candies and it would be flushed out and safe for me to be around others after 2 days. I was clear that I have two kids - 2 1/2 and 7 months and I am very worried about their safety. He kind of blew me off, as did my endocrinologist.
the kids are staying with my husband and mom at my mom's house and I'm at our home. I'm worried about when I should have contact with them again and about possibly contaminating their things while I'm at home.
I don't understand why all the paperwork I signed says 10 days yet the doctor is telling me 2 days. Shouldn't things be more standardized it seems like everyone's doctors say different things.... I'm so confused and anxious.
Also holy crap am I tired and my stupid memory issues seem to have multiplied in the last couple hours...how is that possible??
