I had RAI 3 weeks ago this Friday. The biggest change I see is my chest is quiet. I haven't had a single palpitation four days following the procedure. I had blood work on Friday but am still not hypo. However, my blood work is much improved. Other than not being able to stay awake past 8 o'lock, I feel great. I was very scared to take the step of RAI but my options were slim. I was having frequent palpitaions (most of the time up to 30 pvc's a min.)My eyesight was also getting worse by the day. I was on 450mg daily of PTU as well as medication to slow my heart rate down for the past year. It curbed most of the symptoms (tremors and such) but my bloodwork looked awful. I know this isn't for everyone but I'm glad I did it. I know there is still some "tweeking" to do but I feel more normal than I've felt in a long time. My skin is no longer dry and itchy, I can breath and I don't want to eat the refrigerator! I'm waiting to go back to the ENDO and get the all-clear to exercise again.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
