  • Forum Post: Re: Help me please

    Hi hopeful, yeah don't panic about the RAI, just like Kazzy said you have got to think completely about yourself in this situation. I once saw a wildlife prog about a mother wild dog in the Kalahari desert in Namidia/SW Africa. the Mother had to abandon her cubs for about a week in an old built ruin...

    I have to say tigger that from what I've been through(if you've had a total which I think you have) I would not have been happy had I not had RAI. My anterior neck really lit up, so go carefully. And best of luck too -Oliver.

    I like your post Barbara, this bad things knocking you offcourse and then the next bad thing, and then another(the big C) in a frank way giving you the perspective or biff to get back on course. This I find to be true and something hopeful, Bravo.

    That was very thoughtful Kazzy. I am working on the lowering issues, and the homelife/worklife wrinkles will come out well in the long run. I also think that because it's such a treatable cancer, as patients and as people we may find it easy to fit the treatable or easy aspect -to our lives, and...
  • Forum Post: Re: TESTIMONIES 12.0 - RAI - Going home and dealing with isolation

    My wife was very particular I kept clear for a few days after RAI. Hmmm, never mind. I don't believe she or Finn theBorder terrier would have been much affected. She has a back condition that led to suspician that she might be affected, but my understanding is that it's about developing creatures...

    Hi jules. There is unofficial evidence that Chernobyl had an impact, but so too did atmospheric nuke tests in late 50's & early 60's(before they were banned). So if you were a baby in those times and possibly popped out in the garden to enjoy bit of spring sunshine - then you might be a candidate...
  • Forum Post: Re: Back on the forum!

    Hello Mandy, glad meds going well. The site is very slow, and I have noticed(though this might be a sympton of my computer problems recently) that when I click on the email notification it keeps telling me to join the group. So now I click on the email link and make sure that I log in name and password...
  • Forum Post: Re: Welcome

    Gavin, do you take your meds at night? Only reason I ask is you mentioned aches & pains etc(very tired- going to expect that ), and a bloke called Serge took his meds(thyroxin I think) at night. Found it hard to sleep, all achey etc. So someone clued him up to taking them in the morning - lo ......
  • Forum Post: Re: Welcome

    Don't know what happened there Gavin. My IT skills leave a lot to be desired. I was going to say your tumour was obviously a sneaky one, and quite aggressive too. Sounds like you are in good hand up at Leicester RI. I have found working very helpful to recovery(outdoors mostly like you). You aren't...
  • Forum Post: Re: RAI experience

    Very reassuring Barbara, and to remind that I felt next to nothing during RAI and all after effects were that sort of washed feeling - but my big scan lit up like a Christmas tree the week after. Clever medicine. ~OL
  • Forum Post: Re: Welcome

    Ths 'rare cancer thing' with thyroid Dean has caused some confusion for me during past year. 0.5 % for blokes is pretty rare, but I do wish my GP had said that rather than you've got a rare thyroid (cancer) condition. He must have known I'd be straight on Wikipedia and hoovering up all...
  • Forum Post: Re: Have I made a good decision?

    I think the scan would be the least of your worries jules?! Barbara is well right on the RAI, it's quite calm and straightforward. I found the treatment almost sublime, but I also found the post RAI scan deeply relaxing. But I did feel a bit green few days after RAI. Decisions are a way of life ...
  • Forum Post: Re: The Waiting Game

    Never done it Kazzy, not even steeplejacking up those long spire ladders. But I've done some very naughty things as regards 'risk-in-hindsight'. The most ooh-er was removing a giant order Tuscan 8 column and platform at Kings College Hosp Camberwell to make room for massive "Milburn"...
