I was diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer almost 1 yr ago. I had a total TT and underwent I131 treatment. On September 23rd I had my year out scan. The scan came back clean but my bloodwork was elevated (4.7). I then had a mapping ultrasound, which also came back clean. (My endo ordered all of the follow up tests). I went to my ENT (who had done the orginal TT surgery) to have work done to make my left vocal cord work (it is paralzed). He asked what was going on with the cancer. I gave him the rundown and he ordered a PET scan, which I had yesterday. My question concerns the phone calls I received after I came home. The nurse called and said the radiologist was reading my scan and wanted to know if I had I131 or 123 treaments this month. I told him no, I had a year follow up scan with dose of I131 on Sept. 23rd. He called back to ask how large was the dose (3mc) and where I had it done. Should I be concerned?
