to: Jen and others who have sked this question. How long it takes after radiation depends a alot of factors. How much radiation did you receive, how much you weigh, how tall you are, how overactive your throid is, etc.. There is not pat answer. I have heard from three weeks to six months. Mine took almost three months. One thing I would say is to have your levels checked every few weeks to keep from going hypothyroid and having problems the other way. It may not be the difinative answer you were looking for but one this Graves has taught me is to pay close attention to my body and how it feels to try and catch changes in my system early before I get really sick again.
Hi All I really feel like I’m back to square one. I’m actually taking some time for myself right now to read the messages. Its super to have you people here for us GD sufferers. To make the story short, my mother just returned home from the hospital, she was diagnosed with cancer and its been real difficult around here for the past few weeks. I didn’t leave the BB — honest, just had to take care of things more important right now. Like I said, I had the 131 a month ago. My rash was all clearing up on the Tapazol before the treatment and now its back!!! The endo doesn’t want to do ANYTHING. I had labs run and they’re “normal” whatever that means at this stage. I have to get them run again, I go in on the 25th. Maybe then something will give. The rash started as soon as they decreased my Tapazol prior to the treatment, I guess I don’t understand. I was hyper and I thought skin problems were part of being hypo? Can someone explain? I’m lost. Thanks again for being there, you people are SUPER! Looking forward to the chat next week, hope I can make it. Better yet, gotta FIND IT! ( I’ve downloaded the MIRC files but have not been able to find it. Any help to be had?
