Still Hyperthyroid :-(

Oh my cats, I can't believe this. After all my the money and time spent on my radioactive iodine treatment in February, I am STILL hyperthyroid three months post-treatment. The vet called Mommywith the news this morning, and she is quite upset right now. I definitely am feeling better and the levels are lower than before, but I am not cured.

This was a known risk because my thyroid level was so very high, and I got the maximum dose of radiation. Even though we knew this might happen, it is still very, very upsetting and frustrating

Aside from the obvious upset about me still not being cured, there is the astronomical expense if a second treatment is needed. With all the pre-treatment work needed (x-rays, blood, etc.) it comes to almost $2,000 per treatment.

Mommy will talk to the Radiocat people today or tomorrow to see what they recommend doing next.

Tears of frustration,
Mouse
