Again, but Different?

More Surgery? Maybe……

Lab reports just came back.  My calcium level was tested for the first time and it is elevated….what does that mean?  99% of the time, it is Parathyroid tumor…translation, a tumor on the parathyroid gland which regulates calcium in the body.  Doesn’t sound like a big deal, but over a short time kidney stones, heart disease with a heart attack, GERD, and severe osteoporosis can develop.

Today, I head to the lab again to have the PHT level checked.  That result will tell me if I am set in motion on scans and surgery.

And so, once again, but different…..

    I have two friends that had this surgery and are doing wonderful. They both feel much better. If you want to talk to someone about this let me know.
