Over Active Thyroid

I feel I need to elaberate on my prior question.

I have had and been treated for an over active thyroid. I have been taking Propylthiouracil 50mg 2 twice a day and Propranolol 10mg 1 three times a day. This does not seem to be controling it I have good days and bad days the usual sypmtoms. I went to see my Endocriniology Dr he wanted me to have Radio Active Iodine tablets or an opperation to remove the thyoid gland. Has anyone out there had either one of these treatments if so what was the outcome. I have been out of work for over 2 years now can't seem to find anyone to give me a chance. It is not helped by having the shakes and being unable to think straight, now with being told I will need further treatment how am I supposed to work, who will take me on knowing that I will require time of work for treatment. This is making me so down, I don't want to go out anymore because this seems to be taking over my life. If I have one of these treatments will it make it go away or will I be swaping an over active thyroid for an under active one as the doc says I will have to take thyoxin for the rest of my life. Please any help out there.
