Ok, I finally got an apt with the local Endo in 3 weeks. This was the third time I called them this week. Finally the doc saw my charts. When I called today she said it wasnt there at first but found it and it said URGENT on it!! I asked why and she said all Graves pt do. Ok, that doesnt make me feel better. I left her know how I would like to handle this trying Anti meds first and that for me I dont want RAI. She scheduled me with a doc who has been doing this a long time and is real good she said. I asked if he's old school and she said no he's up to date on things and even orders labs that the labs dont know what is. She scared me a little though and said she knows I'm against RAI but if he says to get then I should listen to him because he's so good. But I dont want RAI! I told her I've been researching on net and she said yeah the docs dont like that too much and there's so much more to it and info. How difficult does this get with wanting to try meds vs doing RAI the dr might want. My husband (who is trying to be supportive) says I'm getting all worked up for nothing. I'm hoping he'll be reasonable and at least try meds first. Does anyone know from your thyroid scans what #'s seem to be worse? And will most Endos let you try meds first? I have 3 weeks to "worry" about this.
