Just a quick follow up for anyone considering taking radio active iodine treatment. I took the treatment on the 10th if April last month, I had no major side effects except a bit of a sore throat, had my followup consultant appointment and bloods done last night and already my thyroid is functioning at a normal level I do not need to take any medication right now 😊 that's not to say it won't continue to fall over the next few months though. However I've found the effects of the iodine fast and effective. I do feel more tired already, less agitated and more able to sit still now which was impossible before and we believe the extreme tiredness I feel just now maybe due to having so much false energy fr so long returning to a normal level seems like no energy to me 😂 extremely pleased however would still rather it burned out completely and I take thyroxine rather than the balancing act for a normal thyroid!
Hope this helps some people out with their decisions in future ❤
