    Internal radiation

    Radiation

    In may of 2004 i had radiation iodine 131 done, which wasn't to bad for me. I got to go to the hospital for a week due to having young children in the house, and didn't want to hurt them at all!! After having this done i waited a week then had my scan done to find out that i still had cancer in my slyvia glands.
