Warning. Radiation & DIY.

I took my son to the hospital today to have his thyroid scanned for any cancerous nodules. On Wednesday he was given a dose of radioactive iodine and today he was scanned to see what would show up.

Interestingly he managed to get the scan pics onto his phone, and they make interesting viewing. It would appear that he has a small spot on his neck which would indicate that the last radiotherapy treatment may not have been one hundred percent effective.

Well we'll just have to see what the oncologist has to say.

One of the problems which you don't read about is that before he has the tests or treatments, he has to come off his medication for a couple of weeks beforehand. This leaves him with very little energy.

Mind you, It seems to coincide with the DIY joblist I get handed every time I go up there!

Just joking Chris. (I know you'll read this).
