      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! (:D
        I’ve downloaded the MIRC files but have not been able to find it. Any help
        to be had?
