Tumor on Parathyroid

Saturday, August 07, 2010

Has anyone had this and had it fixed. Would sure love to hear from you. I was getting so discouraged at not being able to lose weight even when I was being very good that I became inactive in Spark People. In January I was told I had high calcium levels and to stop consuming calcium in any form whether milk, vitamins, supplements, yogurt, etc. The levels continued to rise and I had tests almost monthly. Finally other tests made a tumor likely. In June, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency and started taking a supplement. I decided to add a B Vitamin supplement since I wasn't taking a good daily vitamin. Amazingly, I lost 8 pounds and don't know if that had anything to do with it or not. Last month more tests confirmed a tumor (adenoma). So surgery is scheduled for this coming week and I am looking forward to getting this behind me. I have been told that I will be surprised at how much better I feel. I knew I was tired a lot of days but didn't know why. Maybe now with a healthy eating plan and exercise, I will be able to get those pounds off.

    I have not had this either, but I will keep you in my prayers. I was told I had Vitamin D deficiency too so I started taking it a couple of weeks ago. Good luck to you!
