you are not alone… ive looked over the treatment options and quite frankly they scare the heck outta me… i am not ready to choose either rai or surgery. i was just diagnosed a month ago and my endo is trying to get me 2 do rai…ive just come to terms with the fact i have gd im still trying to wrap my head around how my life has changed. so i told her i needed to think about it. and she wants to see me bck in 3 months with my answer. i told her i didnt want to do it yet and stick to the meds but she was really pushy…but u have to make the right choice for u…i didnt know it would be this hard or this serious.
