    I am glad I found you guys too! Your site has been a blessing to help with some of my worries!

    The Ped. Endo. recommends RAI because she feels the risk of the white blood cell count dropping too great. She feels long-term wise that RAI is a better route to go; as my daughter’s condition after RAI will be more easily managed and the med (Synthroid) will be less toxic to her. She mentioned that with RAI SOME studies have shown a greater risk of cancer later in life. But she said that more recent studies have shown no difference, especially in the low dose of radiation she will be receiving.
    I appreciate all the info and will be checking with you often!
