I had my total thyroid taken out and multiple lymph nodes taken out. Both my thryoid and some of the lymphnodes tested positive. Before I took the RAI my thyroglobulin level was at a 22 and my scan showed that I had activity in my neck. After 1 year, my scan came back clear but my Tg level is at a 2. So my question is...do I do RAI again? My doctor said it was up to me. Kinda confused on whether or I should wait or go for it again. I have one son but would like to have a second child. My doctor said I could go ahead and get pregnant and then when I'm done get tested and see where I am and if my number went back up I could do it then or I could just go for the RAI treatment again right now. I feel very conflicted about it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
