I had Thyroid surgery at the end of January. Thyroid Carcinoma was found in both sides of the thyroid, and after low iodine diet I am scheduled for RAI this Thursday 5th.
I have not received any instructions from my doctor or nurse yet, when I got the cancer results in February I was told that I will stay 2 nights at the hospital and that I am going to be given 2 shots of Thyrogen and take tablets of radioactive iodine, but now I am reading that Thyrogen is difficult to find.
I was reading the posts and although I am very optimistic I am worried about the symptoms described by some of you.
Can anybody tell me what to take for the hospital stay? Both for the symptoms and for comfort. Can I take a laptop? My cell? Books? Food? Medicines?
