I had my radioiodine treatment on Friday...the card they gave me said i can't share a bed with my partner until 19th December (got treatment on Friday 6th Dec), i wasn't expecting it to be so long. The nurse said after the remaining iodine has left my system (4 days) I can hug my fiancé briefly again. I'm wondering about the cats...i'm keeping my distance until it's out of my system (4 days) then I'm hoping I can give them a pat. I've already had to send Oscar (my old boy cat) to my folks cause he wouldn't stay away from me. I can't find any info. One doc said it didn't matter cause pets don't live long enough to be hurt by it but the other said it's a moral issue...if you wouldn't be near kids then the same rules should apply for pets. Any ideas folks?
