Post-Op Care

Although the treatments with 131-I are generally safe, RAI produces radiation so patients must do their best to avoid radiation exposure to others, particularly to pregnant women and young children. The amount of radiation exposure markedly decreases as the distance from the patient increases. Patients who need to travel in the days after I-131 RAI treatment are advised to carry a letter of explanation from their physician. This is because radiation detection devices used at airports or in federal buildings may pick up even very small radiation levels.

How is radioiodine therapy performed?

Radioiodine therapy includes the following steps :

  1. Based on the results of the examination, the doctor determines the required dose of radioactive iodine.
  2. Specialists make a capsule with a substance.
  3. Under the supervision of a doctor, the patient takes radioiodine.

After the procedure, the person emits radiation. This can adversely affect the health of others. Therefore, for 3-7 days the patient remains in an individual ward with a special ventilation system. The duration of hospitalization depends on the dose of radioiodine.
