Hi everyone. It's been awhile since I posted anything but now I'm having more issues! I had RAI about 5 1/2 months ago and my salivary glands hurt SO bad! This just started a week ago. My Endo looked surprised and said it couldn't be because of the radiation and to just take some Advil. Of course whenever something is wrong now I blame it on the cancer or radiation or lack of a thyroid but maybe it's something else. It's not my jaw or my sinuses so I'm hoping someone else can shed some light into this. I also have mild swelling. What's funny is on the thyroid cancer website there just happens to be a survey regarding RAI and salivary glands and part of the questions are regarding 3 to 12 months after RAI. Why would they put that in if it doesn't happen? I think I need a second opinion. I hope someone on here has dealt with this so I know where to turn.
