Hi everyone, I was just diagnosed with hyperthyroid after plenty of scans,bloodwork ,etc, Had my needle biopsy come clean as far as no cancer found, I have all the classic hyper symptoms,....tired yet wired!! Anyway,my first thought after getting my biopsy results was ' great,,,I can go on meds and feel better soon'. Wrong. My referred Endoc. Either wants me to do RAI or surgery to remove 1/2 my thyroid. He claims that if the dose of RAI is small enough to where it will target the hot nodule which is spitting out excess hormones causing me to be hyper,.....and that my chances of becoming hypo after RAI in this case are very small, Everything I've read about RAI says otherwise, Why can't I be treated with meds? Just looking for opinions in hopes someone is familiar with hot nodule treatments, I'm new to all this, and learning as I go, I'd love any input from you all, How many have sought 2nd opinions?ty for any help
