alternatives to RAI?

Hello! I just had a Total Thyroidectomy done 6 days ago, and 2 days ago I got confirmation that there were many tumors of different sizes (some were too small to catch them in the ultrasound) on both sides of the thyroid. They told me they were all Follicular Variant of Papillary cancer. They are recommending RAI and I've been reading about it and it makes me nervous. Is there any other treatment as an option? Any suggestions? THANKS!

You may want to contact the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center for more information on the treatment options available for you. They can be reached 24 hours a day at 1-800-227-2345.

I wish you the best on your treatment.

Take care and be well,
