    Ho ohiolady,

    In a nutshell, that’s pretty much it ~ but those six week windows are a guess, and an optimistic guess at that, so please take that into consideration. Also, don’t say "most likely not" for remission. The percentages I’ve heard are somewhere between 30 and 40% for a first try, and that’s nothing to sneeze at. I think the six months your doctor refers to probably includes the fine tuning.

    ALSO ~ remember that after ATD therapy, presumably you wouldn’t have been hyper for a long period of time before doing RAI, so you’ll go into it healthier than when first diagnosed.
