I don't know anything about Graves, I am in the other boat with Hashi's and cancer. I think they need to test how much your thyroid will take up with 123 so they give you the right dose of RAI 131.  I don't know who long you will have to wait, sorry I am not much help.

Why are you having uptake and scan? is that Iodine 123 or 131? Is this ablation or simply looking for thyroid activity?  You need to explain a bit more.
