re doctor's appointment.

Thursday, May 22, 2014

I am now having a lot of trouble with my parathyroid and the Specialist is very concerned about this as it is the highest he has seen for a long time. The kidneys have a caused this problem but now the parathyroid is causing problems with the kidneys.

I go down to Adelaide on Monday week to have a nuclear scan done of the P/T. I may need to have another operation, all depends on the tests. Then a fortnight after this for scans on my thyroid. This cannot be done at the same time.

I am now losing more calcium which again is causing havoc on the kidneys and was told yesterday to be careful as I could start to break bones.

In the last fortnight I have lost a fair bit of usage of my kidneys.

I asked if this is why I am extremely tired all the time and the answer was "yes". This has gotten a lot worse in the last fortnight. I was also asked if I ached which a replied in the affirmative. The reason why is that I am losing calcium from the bones. Was told that I will always ache now unless I lose the parathyroid glands.

He was quite concerned about me.

Unless this can be changed the outlook is not very positive at present. I really need to put me first for a little while. I have decided to put Sparks on the back burner but I will still be dropping in but not spending as much time on here. Sorry but my health is too important to me and worrying about this is not helping.

    Oh Wendy,

So sorry to hear this latest news dear friend. Just as well your specialist is keeping an eye on this situation, though I wish it was so better for you. I totally understand putting Sparks on the back burner, as I've had to do too...when one has challenging health issues it takes that much extra energy. The most important thing is to look after yourself.

Sending love, hugs and extra prayers your way,

    I've been away from home for 2 weeks and have not been active on SP so I am sorry to be late with this. I'm so sorry to hear you are now in this Catch-22 situation. Of course, you must concentrate on your own health and well-being. You have given a huge amount of time and concern for others and now is the time to concentrate on yourself. Kia kaha, Wendy. emoticon
