Yay! Yippee! and Yahoo!

I went to my new doctor today (endocronologist). And although he hasn't given me a definite NO, he thinks that I will probably not have to do the radioiodine! I'm so excited! Maybe I shouldn't be, because there's still a chance I have to have it. But he says the chance is very unlikely.

I do have to go off my meds for 7 - 10 days, so I'll be tired during that time. Then I will have a lab test. Then the doctor will call me and let me know if my labs look good. If they are good, he's already given me a prescription for my permanent meds (which will be SO much better than the temorary ones I'm on now.)

If I do have to do the radioiodine it's worse than I thought. I have to be away from the kids for 7 days. Apparently, even if I don't get it done now, there's always a possibility I may have to get it done in the future. But I'm going to be seeing this doctor for a while and he'll be checking everything out so I'll know what I need to get done if anything comes up.

I just reread this and it seems hard to read, but I'm really excited (and off my meds) so I may not be the best at forming sentences. I will let you all know for sure next week at the end of the week.

So very promising! I sure hope that the outcome is good, and you wont have to do the awful iodine thing. Ugh. And away from your kids for seven days? Can you do that on a cruise or something so it has some redeeming value? I'm crossing my fingers for you (and Dan, has he done seven days?) and you are always in my prayers. Good luck!
