Default Thyrogen - Delivery Time?

My wife is due for her first annual radiodine scan after a complete thyroidectomy for a papilary carcinoma. Her doctor wants to use a Thyrogen based treatment schedule. We've reviewed the drug and it's side effects and they seem lees than not being on Synthroid. What we are concerned with is that her doctor told us that he would schedule her for the Thyrogen shots after the drug arrived, which could "take a while". My wife has enough anxiety already from the Synthroid so we'd like to know how long did it take your doctor to schedule your Thyrogen shots? We've been waiting two weeks already to hear back from her doctor.

It took almost 4 weeks for my Thryrogen to arrive and I began the shots the next day. My doctor told me this was an extremely long time. The shots are not painful and I much prefer them to going off of my Synthroid (which I have done twice).

I will be having the thyrogen protocol treatment in two weeks. I was scheduled this week so it didn't take long.

Default waiting for a reply.

I called my insurance right away to find out how long it would take to receive the Thyrogen. My doctor said a month or more but by calling the insurance constantly it took three weeks to get everything schedules. This will be my third time getting this test tdone. Right now I feel very positive about everything. I start the test tomorrow.
