Following total thyroidectomy I have had radioactive iodine injection today to see if the cancer may have spread. I have another injection tomorrow followed by scans on Wed and Thurs.
I have shut myself away from family and pets but I'm not too sure how long I need to be isolated. I am allowing a couple of weeks in my head as I don't want to inffect anyone. Is this reasonable?
Does anyone know if the treatment kills any remaining cancer or is it just to highlight it in the body?
I would welcome any reports from trained medical staff who can advise me.
