I had a parathyroid gland removed on Thursday (four days ago). The surgeon was very happy - PTH fell already during the operation and my calcium was normal when they discharged me. I have since developed pins and needles and have been taking calcium supplement.
The scar itself doesn't bother me at all and I don't need painkillers anymore, which is great.
However, I am still very weak and still mostly in bed. Is it normal? Am I expecting too much too soon? Is it to do with calcium maybe falling too low?
How many days should it take before I feel strong enough to even look after myself? When should I start to worry?
