That is Monday and Tuesday. On wednesday I have to get an ultrasound and then take the pill. For some reason, it says I have to fast from 2:30 am. Does that mean fasting until I get the body scan on Friday?

You just need to fast before you take the RAI. This way it gets into your system fast. About forty-five minutes after your dose are able to drink and eat. Be sure to drink a lot of fluids. Not so much that you feel sick however. Make sure that this is what they want you to do first. This is the instructions I was given. You don't have to wait until Friday to eat. That would be cruel and unusual.

I am going to call the dr.morning because his instructions are very confusing. Thanks for the info though.
