PTH below normal / High Calcium

I am Post-Op Total Thyroidectomy/Partial Para Thyroidectomy 5 yrs. I have struggle to keep my Calcium at the lowest normal due to: I had an Adenoma on one Para Thyroid Glands, the three remaining Para Thyroid Glands have been dormant and/or accidently removed during surgery.

Three months ago... my Blood Serum Calcium, as well as, Urinary Calcium was very high. So, the ENDO took me off of the medication I take twice a day, that replaces the PTH that enables me to absorb Calcium. However, my PTH level still remains below normal.

So, how is my Calcium high, while PTH is and always has been below normal? Even my ENDO says he is confused...

5 years later; I suddenly have High Calcium? So the ENDO had me stop taking the prescription "Rocaltrol twice per day" that enable Calcium absorption?  How is my Calcium High?

Has anyone ever had this happen, and how can it happen? Thanks for any info; TheSonsflower
