Thyrogen/RAI next week - extremely nervous

Hi all,

My post is a little last minute considering my first thyrogen shot is Monday 6/19... but I'm hoping some of you can offer some reassurance/encouragment. 

I have a tremendous fear of nausea and vomitting and am very nervous about the possibility of getting sick from the thyrogen shots and/or the RAI. I've put off this treatment for almost a year due to this fear :( 

I'd appreciate it if anyone could share their personal experiences with the shots and the RAI, or offer any advice.

Thank you!

You should have nothing to fear.  I had RAI with thyrogen and it was very unremarkable.  The anticipation before the treatment was the only difficult part of the treatment for me. 

Take the time to rest, treat it like a vacation and enjoy some quiet days and nights.

I had the same fear before thyrogen/rai and didn't have any symptoms at all during them! Of course everyone's different and you may experience some symptoms, but try to remain calm and positive and it will be over soon!
