I posted here for the first time on January 7th about my husband with Graves' Disease going to get his radioactive iodine treatment for his thyroid that afternoon and what to expect. No later than two hours later did I get a call saying that my husband had a bad reaction to the radiation and he was in the ICU. I got there as soon as I could. It ended up not being a bad reaction, but a severe thyroid storm triggered by the RAI. His blood pressure went to 230/100, he fainted and his nose started pouring out blood. The hospital that he was at almost air lifted him to another hospital that was bigger and better equipped to handle someone that needed ICU that also was radioactive. He stabilized shortly after and had to stay in ICU for almost three days. He just got home from his mom's today, he's in the clear to be around our small boys tomorrow, so we have someone watching them until then. He's very tired, dizzy, shaky, plus his doctor put him on Prednisone which is making him not too friendly.
