I don't know how long they expect you to do without NDT - nearly 4 weeks - it is ridiculous. Do they really expect you to do without all this time. I dread to think how unwell you must be feeling.


hi shaws being without my ndt has been a nightmare everything i have wrong with me has been exacerbated 10 fold the first week was not so bad but the last 2 have been nightmarish i think my poor family would whole heartedly agreewith that description well 4 more sleeps to try and get through lol G


Why didn't they prescribe you T3 for two weeks after stopping NDT? T3 has to be stopped 2 weeks before RAI but its not as brutal as making you hypo for 4 weeks?

If you have to have a follow scan I recommend you chase up on this.


Thanks clutter hopefullys no return scan fingers crossed 2 more days to go hopefully get back tp normal soon
