I have a nodule on my thyroid and am having some pretty severe symptoms of thyroid problems so they want to do a radioactive isotope uptake test to determine if it is possibly cancerous. My 2.5 year old is still nursing quite a lot. I don't have a huge supply due to breast reduction but she is still nursing whenever she wants during the day and night. All of the websites I've found say that radiation can sometimes be okay but the radioactive isotope uptake test is NEVER okay with breastfeeding. Does anyone have any info on this? Weaning is just NOT an option, she has special needs and is not ready to wean. What am I going to do???
