For 4 days I was on a calcium iv drip, had my blood
tested every 6 hours and took supplements.
When I was released, my calcium
was back up to 10.0, but I am now on 4 500mg calcium pills 4 times a day and 4 .5 calcitrol capsules twice a day.
Is this too much? Do you think I will have to take this much forever?
My surgeon said that none of the parathyroids were removed, and that he transplanted 1 or 2 (i can't recall) and that all I need to do is be patient.
