I got a call from my endo this morning telling me I was going to have an uptake scan. Have any of you ever had one done? what can I expect?

Hi. Thanks for posting.

I've had this done many years ago. I swallowed pills that I called "Fla Gator Colors, Orange and blue! LOL

Here is a link I found about it. I had to swallow the two capsules and then go back to the Hospital about 2.5 hours later for them to scan me. It's an XRAY machine from what I remember.

Good luck to you hun -- DO let me know how it goes. I hope all will be OK!

Take care!

 Hi there. I just read the info that LilyPondOasis posted and I will be having the full body scan done Mar. 28th. I had/have thyroid cancer. It sounds like yours will be pretty simple. As far as I know you just lay there and let the machine do all the work. I agree with LilyPondOasis, let us know how it went. Well wishes to you..HUGS
