    I've had covid a couple of times and it takes ages to get over it.

    Must have missed it is Jess leaving the family home and moving in to her own place or have I got it totally wrong

    I had some bloods done this week, as Im seeing the endocrinologist on Monday. My thyroid is very under active (which is expected so Im not worried about that), and my parathyroid and calcium levels are still high - despite the new meds. Not what I wanted to see..

    Right, saw the endocrinologist yesterday. (I left home for work at 9am and finally got home at 4pm and I was in heels the whole time - feet up today :/) Anyway, she confirmed that the tablets are only able to control the calcium levels and dont impact the parathyroid issue. The only option is surgery to remove one of the glands. First, though, I need to have a kidney scan (as damage to the kidneys is common) and parathyroid scan to figure out which one is enlarged, before they refer me to the surgeon. I have no idea how long this is all going to take. I need to keep an eye on my BP as the parathyroid is raising it, but otherwise its just a waiting game. Si was in shock, Im not sure hed believed me that surgery was the only option lol. I was chatting to my boss, who also has CRPS because theres a risk the surgery could trigger it in my throat and neck. But the continued hyper parathyroid could also trigger it, so its a win-win situation. Not

    Oh, and shes raised my thyroxine, thank God!
