    I am that rare case where my thyroid did come back 4 years later and it was pissed at me. I tried PTU and it only made it worse and grew at an even faster rate. Plus the PTU did a number on my liver and white blood cells. I had no choice but to do RAI for a second stronger dosage. I still worry when my labs are off and I have annual ultrasounds to monitor my non existent thyroid.

    I wanted to manage my GD with out the second RAI. And I fought it tooth and nail. It is still a struggle but the long term affects of being hyper are far greater than the struggles with being hypo.

    Best of luck to you. I know it is rough. But I LOVE your broom analogy. I have to share that with my husband and family. They all think I am NUTS.

    Good luck!
