I took radioactive iodine (RAI) and dose given to me received 15 mCi on the 26-12-2008.
On monday 04-01-2009 i gone through radiation scan and the radiation level on my neck is 30 mCi.

I have three kids eldest is 6 1/2 years old, than 4 1/2 years old and youngest is 7 months old (I don't brestfeed).

I had been isolated till 04-01-2009. During this time (26-12-2008 to 04-01-2009) my husband came to meet me, he also slept twice with me (4th & 8th day).

Don't have intercourse right now. I don't remember the time frame -  but you can check that out on a google search - or some other member may chime in.

Your isolation period is over now since 1/4/09 right? If I am right then this is the time where you need to clean your area extremely well and throw out most of the things you used. Sheets - Wash the bedding twice - throw out the disposable plates cups and utensils ( wrap in plastic bags ) and toss.

Clean - clean - clean. Try to trace your steps while you were in isolation and clean and toss things out you used.

Toss that Toothbrush!!

I may have missed some stuff  but you get the idea - right?
