€i told my daughter who is pregnant to either come to see me tonight or wait until i go home from the hospital.”-the client will be on a clear liquid or very low residue diet. hamburgers and french fries are not allowed. people who are pregnant should not come in close contact with someone who has internal radiation therapy. the radioactivity could possibly damage the fetus. this statement is not true. as soon as the radiation source is removed (probably 36 to 72 hours after insertion), the client is no longer contaminated with radioactivity. craft projects usually require the client to sit. the client must remain flat with very little head elevation during the time the rods are in place.
