    Question: Would like to know more about X-ray therapy to reduce
    swelling of the tissues. I had come across some info on the net
    from Stanford about how 80-90% of their pts. treated with the
    X-ray therapy had regression of their eye problems. And according
    to that source since the X-ray actually kills the lycosomes,(those
    white blood cells) that causes the tissues to swell that their pts.
    don’t seem to have further problems? I can’t find it on the net
    anymore but am curious, esp. since someone had mention that Barbara
    Bush had it done. Why isn’t done more? That orbital decompression
    sounds too scary. Also I am 36 and an RN who used to work critical
    care. An endocrine M.D. once told me that there seemed to be a
    high percentage of RN’s with Graves. Coincidence? One last question-
    Any support groups in the Denver area?
