By day 3 of my RAI treatment, I was experiencing major gassy stomach. Hmm...not surprising since I had taken a roadiactive pill just a couple of days ago. I also started having a bit of a loose stool. Also, not surprising.
Let me interject that these are my symptoms. Our body chemistry is as unique to our own bodies as our personality so your experiences may be different. I just wanted to share mine so that others would have some idea of what others went through.
The other thing that was pretty incredible for me was my energy level was good and the treatment didn't interfere with my eating. I am an 0 blood type and a protein metobolic type (I know this from working with a nutritionist and functional medicine doctors) so for proteins are a must for me. My body doesn't process carbs very well but that is what I craved. At this point in my healing process, I decided not to beat myself up because I wanted carbs. Treat yourself well. Life will get back to normal so don't be hard on yourself if you don't eat the best or start gaining a little weight. I've been told that it's a good idea to have a little more weight on your body during recovery. There is time to lose it after the healing.
I had another good night's sleep. Ahh...that helps a lot.
