Linda, I've had total thyroidectomy on Valentines Day and RAI at Easter and am not as lucky as you in the recovery department. (Having a hard time with the low energy, etc. In fact, I found the whole process to be life-changing and quite frightful at times.) I've been looking for a good discussion group or anyone who has gone through the same thing, but to no avail. I would love to talk more about this with you.
