  • You should be fine. I think that is the test where they give you the radioactive iodine and see if it shows up in your body anywhere. Is this the test where you cant be around other people for like 5 days. I had to have all of these test done when I had thyroid cancer and had to have mine removed. I dont think a little bit of sodium will matter as long as you didnt have a whole lot.
