On Monday and Tuesday of this week I had thyrogen injections to prepare for my rai scan today. I have had this before and both times I get sick from the injections. I guess I'm the one in a million that it happens to. My question is that last night I had some very bad chest pains just to the right of my sternum. It lasted for a half hour and then went away. I could feel it in my back too. Is this a side effect of the thyrogen too. Is it something else or just possible stress/anxiety? I don't want to put too much on it, but it kind of had me freaked out.
Also, is it normal for uptake from the scan to show in the throat almost 2 years past TT and ablation? And in your intestine?
