Thyroid Cancer

I was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and had both thyroids taken out. Now they are recommending radio active iodine and to take thyroid replacement hormones for life. During the surgery they also found spread of the cancer to local lymph nodes close to thyroid.

Can anyone please tell me about the turn around time to get my first class medical back from the FAA? Would i get my medical back if the levels are at 0.1. My treating physician says that my levels would never be normal since they are trying to keep the thyroid hormones down to prevent recurrence. Thus i would never be "euthyroid". What thyroid levels will the FAA be looking before issuing the certificate? Any info is much appreciated. Thanks.
