I'm wondering if any of you have had this radioactive iodine treatment and how it affected your thyroid and body in general? I was diagnosed with Graves in April of 2014 but was told this had been ongoing for at least a few years. I haven't recieved any form of treament.. I tried Tapazole and got all the side effects so my doctor said she didn't want to try any other kind of medication as my body seemed to be very sensitive, now she's telling me this iodine treatment is my only option. I'm nervous about it because I was told having this done may not even help with all my symptoms but will cause me to go from hyper to hypo.. it sounds odd but I'm just getting used to dealing with my body the way it is and am nervous about the changes and symptoms that would bring on. Any advice you guys have would be VERY helpful! Thank you thank you!!
