Radioactive iodine treatment

Hi all,

Just an update from me.

I had my treatment yesterday up at Guys London.

It was much better than I was expecting.  I was treated really well and let out at 4pm.

I am tired today with neck and throat restriction, still a little dizzy when standing but i have been out for a walk, away from people!!  

I am still so unstable with my mood, unable to cope overall.  I am seeing someone for some help.

It's all been such a whirlwind, 2 ops in close succession, treatment and scan tomorrow.  

I got my diagnosis back in August 2019 so it's all been very fast.  

I'm trying to stay positive and think ahead but some days that seems hard..

I hope you all are thriving x x x 

  • Heya, 

    Sorry, what exactly did you have yesterday?

  • Hi Vivienne

    Glad your treatment went well, you obviously weren’t in for long. I hope your scan goes well, I found lying still quite difficult, but I am a fidget. 

    I think mentally a cancer diagnosis is something we all struggle with, I am glad you are getting some help. I am thinking about contacting my local Maggies centre as initially I was fine , but recently finding things more difficult.

    Had a few problems with my thyroxine levels in January and February in 2020. I felt exhausted and resting heart rate was down to 44. Contacted my consultant, arranged bloods and my T4 was too low. Medication was changed and felt good since then.
