On the 5th day of RAI treatment, I am experiencing a sore throat. Something I was told I might experience on Day 1. My energy level and appetite was good but my throat and tongue felt thick and icky. My neck also felt very thick.
At Day 5, I am getting antsy to get out. Did I mention, I am a people person and love to go shopping. Yet, I had today and 2 more days to go. I prayed God would help me to just relax into it. And, He did. Getting out for a walk was wonderful. I had a chance to be outside and see people even though I still kept my distance. Better to be overly cautious than to take the chance of my radioactivity levels affecting anyone else.
This night, I had trouble sleeping as well. This may not have anything to do with the RAI treatment but it is worth noting.
