Please don't read this and think this will be your experience if your immune system functions normally...you will be fine...but I however was not fine...and what I went through still makes me cry 5 days after RAI..I had told my doctor I was chemically sensitive but he didn't listen...I begged for a low dose as I already had a TT on the 4th before they found cancer . The TT was for hashimotos and nodules...but cancer was found in both lobes..
I was told to go to hospital to take pregnancy test...it was negative...I was very afraid because I have trouble taking normal drugs like Tylenol or even a vitamin..I have environmental sensitivity to new carpets and paints etc...so I tried to be bold ...I was taken to a room where they pulled out a biohazard container...he pulled out two pills as my dose was 150😞... i did begin to cry...I swallowed both pills...within 15 minutes I got sensitive to light and sound...on ride home. I could feel warmth all over my body but centered in thyroid area.. I thought OK I can do this . I started drinking fluids. My family left. The warmth turned to burning all over and in stomach like glass and flames...I became severely nauseated...I tried everything. .nothing helped...I got very ill by the second day I couldn't eat ... I don't want to go into too much detail because it seems like a dream...but if you are sensitive don't take this unless you have no other recourse. I will never do it again. I would choose any alternative but never will I drink poison ever again...the tech made it sound so easy. It was like I fought a dragon for my life a few times I wished I wasn't around. I will state again I have a different situation but the nausea was indescribable for me..one night I wanted to call the paramedics because I started to swell and I was so sick..I convinced myself the Nuc tech must have overdosed me..this was my experience as a person with chemical sensitivity...I would not recommend this
