20 years ago I had radio therapy due to a liposarcoma on my back, afterwards had to have plastic surgery due to a 'overdose' of radio therapy.
In January 2012 I was given a dose of radio active iodine.
I asked on both occasions if the radio therapy or the radio active iodine ( on top of radio therapy) would have any lasting effects. I was told NO.
My thyroid went from overactive to under active in about 6 weeks.
Since then I have suffered from tinnitus, hearing loss and have a hiatus henia.
Question asked has the radio active iodine caused any of these? Consultants I have seen have I can only explain it as ' saying unproven' but with an underlying suggestion in tone that 'possible'.
I would just like to know!
This bring me to article in Daily Mail today page 46, Heading How to live longer. In suggests some herbs and spices could help.
Instance, oregano -see article below.
A point also is - how can you drink radio active iodine, which goes down your throat all the through your body and it only effect your thyroid? Where is the proof?
Sorry for a long message.
