    I cannot really offer any great words of wisdom but I am really sorry to hear of all the problems you have endured.  You really have gone through the mill.  It really does sound like your doctors don't know what they are doing with you.  I was under the impression that RAI was not really suitable for people suffering with graves ophthalmology but I might be wrong.  Perhaps someone else, more knowledgeable than I am, will be able to advise you better.

      i had no problems with hair loss,i was just washed out.You have to remember most people who have it have cancer and are very poorly,it certainly puts your illness in prospective when you look around the waiting room.The doctors said it could take ayear to 18 months to work then after 4 mths said it hadnt worked?although i have got more movement in my eyes.good luck
