Have been on vacation for a month, so haven't posted here. Hope everyone is doing well.
How long after 131 radioactive iodine do you people have your thyrolobulin level checked ? I heard two docs say six months later, and a few say six weeks after rai 131.
Has anyone here had the thyroglobulin checked just before 131, then had it checked four to eight weeks later ? If the rai is killing thyroid cells, it seems that the thyroglobulin would go UP after rai then go slowly back down.
So how many weeks or months after rai 131 should one get their thyroglobulin checked ? And has rai made it go up slightly ? Greatly ?
