    As promised, I'm sharing my health information. According to a large recent study radioiodine for Graves' disease is known to cause several cancers, primarily breast and abdominal cancer. Cancers typically develop 30 years after exposure to radioiodine.

    I had RAI 30 years ago. I now have peritoneal carcinomatosis, a metastatic disease I'd never heard of before. I'll be having surgery June 15th followed by chemotherapy. I'll keep up the website until surgery but afterwards I'll likely need some time away. But that remains to be seen. I'm hoping for an easy surgery and recovery. Prayers are appreciated! Thanks for all your kind wishes. Keep well, Elaine
