Lisa,
I’m new to this, too, but it is my understanding that on the medication there is a chance of remission,
20-50% depending on whose report you read! Age plays a factor in deciding whether or not a person should
get RAI, the size of the thyroid and the uptake, etc. I was told that if is caught early that the
chances of remission are also higher. I was feeling so symptomatic last month, I would have swallowed an atomic bomb
if they told me it would help…but the Radiologist & Endo convinced me otherwise. Perhaps you are
in the right condition to hope for a remission… What I’m wondering, is why do some doctors automatically
choose PTU and other Tapezole? What’s the big difference? Glynis
