I've heard one day, two days, and five days. Which did your doc recommended ? Do you stay on it longer than recommended ?
I was told that I could eat a regular diet after the third day of taking RAI. They said that by that time all of the cells that were going to take up the RAI had already taken up. I ate my regular diet after the full three days because I didn't feel that it would do any good to stay on LID if that was the amount of time the RAI would absorb. Staying on the diet after that point would be a personal choice.
My ENDO told me to resume normal diet and to start thyroid replacement med AFTER the whole body scan which is exactly one week from my RAI :( not what I hoped for but it is what it is....LOL
RAI yesterday so the countdown begins :)
What did your doc tell you???
