I had a parathyroidectomy 2.5mo ago, and all my symptoms disappeared except chronic right flank pain and low back pain.
My dexa was good, considering, I have Osteopenia borderline in my spine, and Osteopenia in both hips. I was on HRT's for the previous 5yrs which I believe helped, because by the time I discovered my condition, my calcium was 16, and had to be brought down by IV medication in the hospital. The Parathyroid Adenoma was 3.3gms!
SO, I know I've had this for a very long time.
I had an elevated WBC of 12,000 pre-op, and have maintained it even after surgery. I still have right flank pain and low back pain, and a feeling of swelling or fullness on occasion in my abdomen.
I'm worried about : pancreatitis
Adrenal issues and the like.
I can deal with the low back pain, but the constant elevated WBC and right flank pain have gone undiagnosed. I don't have a UTI or PYelo.
