I've been told I need to look at definative treatment after my graves has relapsed. To be honest I don't really want either and whilst I realise the Endo can't force me he's made his feelings on the matter quire strong. He's put me on carbimazole for 2 months to buy me some time to decide. I have 3 children aged 7, 5 and 3 and I'm concerned for them with RAI but the surgery sounds equally as daunting. How long do you have to stay away from young children? I'd be grateful if anyone could offer their opinion on either. Thanks.
