I had RAI 4 1/ 2 years ago. no side affects. however I did get hypothyroid really fast and they have never been able to regulate my blood levels (altho I think I’m in a minority with that complaint–except for the people on this BB.
My Dr. told me that surgery could possibly affect the vocal cords negatively. Also possible but highly unlikely is that thyroid would come back after RAI. I hope this helps….Kendra
