I am scheduled for surgery Jan 8 for one eye and then Jan 15 for the other. And of course the doctor wanted to paid in advance for the non-covered charges.
I am having my follow up nuclear medicine scan after thyroid surgery last January for thyroid cancer. I had radioactive iodine treatment last February. I ran into the office scheduler from my Endocrinologist's office at my Pick Up the Radioactive Pill (low dose used for the scan) appointment and she told me my Endocrinologist wants me to stay off the Synthroid until all the blood work is back. Yes very tired. LOL.
I am need another radioactive (high dose pill) treatment and thus in a quandary about the timing. I'd hate to cancel my surgery date, but am concerned about the effects on the proper healing of the eye after surgery if I go ahead with the Radioactive iodine treatment say a month later or two or even three.
Anyone have any information on this? I will ask my Eye Surgeon this Monday, but more info is better.
Thank you very much,
