    Hello and good to hear from you again. Too bad you could not make it to the conference this past weekend. This topic was discussed at length with at least three doctors and the patients in attendance.

    The RAI did what it was designed to do for you and to kill off your thyroid. That is the expected end result of RAI, then we go on replacement hormone.

    It is safe for your daughter’s age. Other options are surgery or antithyroid drugs. Long term ATD (antithyroid drugs) are not recommended due to long term use, increases in side effects. All the doctors at our conference talked about patients in your daughter’s age group and they recommended RAI or surgery.

    We are only a click away.
