This is not my area of expertise, and I am only replying because it's the long weekend, and I think the forum will be pretty quiet. I know my neighbor just had a scan on Wednesday, and she has to stay on the LID until they get results and see if there's anything further they have to do. I hope someone more knowledgable than I will pipe in, but if not, I'd keep it up for the week, just in case...it's not worth the hassle if you go off and were supposed to stay on.
Good luck, and pig out on something legal!!!
Thanks for your help! Have a nice weekend!
here is my guess, and it is just a guess: you probaby don't need to stay on LID until your whole body scan. you needed to stay on it for your test (small pill) scan and your treatment (large dose) and for a few days after while the treatment was working. my dr. said I could go off LID 3 days after my RAI also. when you are scanned next week, they will not be giving you additional RAI, just looking at you on a machine, so you don't need to be LID. even if they thought you needed another round of RAI, they wouldn't be giving it right away, so you wouldn't need to be on LID.
-thats my guess, but if you want to play it safe, you could stay on LID until you clear it with your dr. I hated LID but honestly, it took me awhile to get used to eating "regular" food again anyway.
thank you! So helpful! So you went off the diet and they were able to see your test results no prob?
