    This is my 3rd surgery. I had to have thyroid completion. I will have to follow with I-131 Radiation treatments. Surgery went well. My meds have been increased again. I am already experiencing the different changes. Roller coaster ride for sure. Anyone have experience with I-131?

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
