First, I appreciate reading everyone's comments. Thanks to you I fought and finally got Thyrogen. I am due to have the RAI on 4/25. There has been debate between the nuclear medicine dept and my endocrinologist as to whether I need to go off the synthoid and cymotel before my thyrogen I njections and RAI. I wanted thyrogen so I would not have to go off these meds. From what I see here, people have stayed on synthoid (I am at 88mcg) and 12.5 mcg of cymotel.
Any thoughts or. Omens would be greatly appreciated. I start the non iodine diet tomorrow and have stage 2 papillary cancer. The nuclear medicine department said to go off all drugs on the 20th. I will be talking with my doctor on Monday. P,ease help. Thanks!
