I have surgery planned for next week. My calcium level is at 11 and has been steadily going up for over ten year. I had to go to the ER last night because I thought I was having a heart attack. It turned out to be Pleurisy. They did a scan with some IVP dye and I have an enlarged heart that I didn't know that I had. I am the most hateful human on earth, and I am in so much pain, (knees, joints, thumbs, legs, everywhere. I can hardly move. I can't turn my head to the left. I have essential tremor, COPD, high blood preasure, and gain weight constantly. ) By now you are shaking your head.) Will I feel any better after this surgery? I know it won't cure it all, but in a medical opinion, what percentage of relief will there be. There are no Kidney stones, some head aches, I can't remember what happened 10 mins ago. My teeth are falling out, my hair is thinning, and I sleep 16 or 18 hrs. a day. Give me some good news, or tell me to forget it, please.
