Sorry it took me so long to respond but I just got home from work.
I had high calcium in my blood for years. They knew I had a nodule on my parathyroid but did nothing about it. I did not know at the time that high calcium in your blood work actually means you have to little calcium and your body is pulling it out of your bones and it ends up in the blood.
When I started getting kidney stones they decided to do the surgery.
The surgery was written up. Appearantly we have more than one parathyroid. The Dr. kept me open after he removed the parathyroid that was affected. He ran a blood test to make sure no other parathyroids were involved.
The night of the surgery I stayed in the hospital. They gave me morphine but I was not in a lot of pain. I went home the next day and didn't take the pain killers until bedtime. I think I took them one or two nights. I was back to work in a few days. It was not a big deal.
I wish I had it sooner. The waiting caused me to to develop osteoporosis.
Good luck to you. If there is any way I can help you please let me know. Diane
