    because I am currently radioactive.

Is there a story behind this that you'd like to share?

Nuclear Medicine implants a radioactive "seed" about the size of a grain of rice. This is to light up the location where doctors will be cutting out a few cells that they say are in the "atypia" stage. Is that vague enough?

And they aren't letting you out because of that? That's supposed to be miniscule radiation, isn't it?

No no - I am not in the US. It's not that they aren't letting me in or out. I could get in with the official doctor's note, but I'm not heading down there (unless there was a sudden hubski meetup in Michigan), so I said no to the note. The US - Canada border has all kinds of radiation detectors that can detect me coming before I get up to the window (driving, that is, not flying).

And yes, it is miniscule. They saaaayyyyy.

Did you have any adverse effects from the "seed" itself? feel any iller due to it?
