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.
