Internal radiation - Nursesknow

Radiation Associated with Intraocular Melanoma (also called Melanoma of the Eye). Posted on May 3, 2015 View this journey (9 Experiences)

I had a radio-isoptope 125I put in my right eyeball and then I hung out in a room for 5 days. The good news is my sweet boyfriend at the time got me food from Whole Foods down the road and the nurses were sweet. The bad news was that I had 7 local channels, 3 were scribbly, the TV was too high to see anyway, there was no WIFI, and my neighbor used her phone to sell shark oil capsules...telemarketing type stuff. Her captain in the military son would visit once a day as if it were and order to be accomplished. And atropine in the eye all the time. I've been nauseated since. I have flashbacks of William Penn and getting pushed through security at the airport. It was surreal somehow.
