Hi folks. Just thought I would let you know it has been almost 2 weeks since they ablated my thyroid with radioactive iodine. My recovery is slowly progressing. I am struggling with some increased symptoms of hyperthyroidism but that was expected. My heart rate has climbed, fatigue increased, trembling has increased (it is a challenge just to hold the phone and fly fishing is out), sore throat, swollen salivary glands, insomnia, but the feared thyroid storm never reared it's ugly head.
Believe it or not these are all good signs that the treatment is working. I can't go fly fishing but we are going to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert in Hershey Sunday evening. I can sit down for that.
