      yep, I had RAI a year ago. I felt it was best for me. I researched it and got alot of info from the thyroid foundations out there. I still believe it’s the best way to go….for me anyway. Any specific questions that you’re looking for answers to?

        I am interested in hearing from anyone who has had radioactive iodine treatment for GD. I am scheduled for the treatment on January 10th, and am not sure that this is the way to go.

          I had the procedure done in 1994. I now need to take synthroid versus
          tapazol before the procedure. I tolerate the synthroid better. The worst
          part for me was that I went very, very hyperthyroid (thyroid storm)
          after the radioactive iodine treatment. Awfully uncomfortable for several
          weeks. I was then put back on tapazol to bring me down and I overshot
          and went hypothyroid. In other words, it took a while to get balanced.
          I have had to adjust (increase) the amount of synthroid I take a couple
          of time the last year. I gather this is normal. Still get cramps
          and muscle soreness when I’m hypo and in need of a synthroid adjustment.
          The bottom line is that the radioactive iodine treatment was the right
          course for me.
