Second appointment last week. Consultant: you are hyper again will need to up medication
Me: I'm not surprised
Consultant: we will think about RAI do you have contact with little people?
Hmm does she mean leprechauns ?
So I ask what happens with the antibodies if you kill off the thyroid?
Oh they will attack elsewhere probably your eyes !!!!!! I was too dumbfounded to reply😱. Is it me ? Why are they so hell bent on RAI or thyroidectomy? They are not saving money because I will end up with eye problems or is it passing from one department to another? Anyway this is the first time my meds had been reduced to minimal dose it doesn't mean it won't settle next time. I think this was the first time since being diagnosed ( April) that it suddenly hit me the reality of Graves' disease and all the implications 🤔🙄😏
