Hello, I've received an official diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism recently, and am preparing to move toward surgery next.
I'm relieved at finally finding a diagnosis that fits, having suffered from nearly all possible parathyroid symptoms for years now (including four rounds of kidney stones), especially one that can be resolved.
I'm a 33 year old mom of five with a veteran husband who has PTSD - the possibility of having energy, sanity, less crankiness, all of it - sounds like a dream.
I am feeling a little trepidation moving forward about finding the right surgeon, trying to assure we get all affected parathyroids, recovery, etc.
I'd love to read anyone's story (especially if you're similarly aged to me), suggestions on selecting the right surgeon, what recovery and life "after" hyperparathyroidism is like. Has anyone felt it was easier to lose weight with less fatigue?
