So I was diagnosed with graves disease and hyperthyroidism about a year and a half ago and ever since have been debating if I should have RAI. My thyroid lvls are normal at the moment on tapazole but the problem is my goiter is 3 times bigger than normal and I feel alot of pressure on my throat and the thought of RAI scares me but I think it might help my goiter. I am just sick and tired of feeling like crap all the time. So im really confused about what to do. And I heard that RAI makes TED worse but I already have it pretty bad and have to use eye drops all thru out the day. I have done alot of research but if anyone wants to share their personal expierance that would be great. Thank you.
