The study was performed subsequent to the pill of 2.6 mCi. Imaging was performed at 48 and 72 hours and demonstrates residual degree of increased uptake probably representing most of the left lobe the right lobe is not visualized although there is also a small amount of activity caudal to the main residual activity in the midline or slightly toward the right. This could represent residual nodul disease or thyroid disease. Elsewhere there are no focal areas of abnormal uptake noted.
Impression: Significant residual uptake in the neck ablation will be needed
So, how low do you have to get before they do RAI and will you have to be off of meds again for awhile?
When I was first diagnosed with thyca, they told me I had time, we could have waited several weeks if I had things that I had to accomplish. I simply decided not to wait. Let's get it done and now. My decision. ...this is very, very, very treatable and I know more than a bit terrifying, at least it was for me, but just keep doing what your doing...I know the waiting must be rediculously hard, but get that TSH down and go again. Take care of yourself...pamper yourself....long baths...lighted candles....nice music... When the husband gets home...some cuddling and slow dancing..
Get your hair done, your face ripped off (waxing..well that is what it feels like. ), toes and nails done. Be good to yourself. You deserve it. dang it.
Talked to MD Anderson this morning they said they received the papers from Dr. Arian's office,now the papers will be sent to their Endocrinologist and they will call and let me know when my appointment is with them. Should be within 3 business days i hope that they will call and make the appointment.
I'm feeling a little more settled this morning after 4 days on the Synthroid. I finally slept some last night so that helped.
