I begin my RAI treatment Oct 26th. I have a call into the Nuc nurse with some questions but she hasn't called back. My main concern is that I live about an hour from the hospital. I go on the 26th for the initial uptake and then again the next day for some scans. That day they said I will be at the hospital all day and will meet with the nuc doctor in the afternoon. I always like to have someone with me when I see doctors to have a second set of ears. At first they told me I would come back on Wednesday for my full dose and couldn't have anyone with me as we would be in a car for too long together. Then they told me that the doctor might decide to give me my full dose on Tuesday at that appointment....So I shouldn't bring anyone with me that day also. I am concerned because I'm worried I will be very tired being off of meds to be able to drive myself to and from the hospital. What have others done in this situation? I really want to tell them that I only want the full dose on the Wednesday so that I won't be at the hospital all day and have to drive home alone! I wish they would call me back....I left a message 2 days ago!
