    Update after 6 weeks of RAI Family and friends helped take care of my baby but it was pretty challenging. I was told to stay for 2 whole weeks in my room away from my family. I was kinda chocked it took this long rather than isolating for just 7 days. The doctor said it was because I had a high dose. Unfortunately, the body scan showed a lymph node that the surgeon had left behind. I need to wait a couple of mon...

      Thank you Brenda. It was tough, but I don't t feel it's the end of the story yet. I have a big feeling that it has spread to other parts in my body. I'm waiting to make a full body scan on Tuesday after taking the pill 2 days ago. I'm experiencing a burning sensation in my lower abdomen now. Hope that doesn't mean Iodine uptake in that area. Wish me luck:)

        So happy for you. Thanks for sharing:) I am taking zofran as well cuz I'm allergic to Iodine. I still feel a little nauseous but no vomiting. Drinking lots of water but couldn't eat anything yesterday. I am also experiencing a burning sensation near my ovaries. I hope the cancer didn't spread to other organs. Since I knew that the cancer has been in my neck for years, I am taking every symptom very seriously now...

              Hi, I'm sorry to hear you are going through this. It must be tough on you. But let me give you a piece of advice from my own experience. I was diagnosed with papillary cancer 3 months ago. Eventhough I've been following up with my endocrinologist for the past 4 years, the slow growing cancer was unbelievablely spread and I had to have an "extraordinary extent thyroiductomy" with two wounds longer than normal to ...
