Please help. I need to be cured!
I recently had a parathyroidectomy to remove a probable adenoma from the inferior parathyroid.  Pre-op my calcium ranged from 2.63 - 2.70.  My PTH ranged from 8.6 - 13.  My Vit D was also low at b/w 32-40.  Three weeks ago, i had surgery whereby the tumor was removed.  Thymic tissue was also attached as was connective and adipose tissue.  It was a grey tumor of around 1cm determined to be an adenoma.  After surgery my symptoms did not improve greatly, and at post-op consultation (3 weeks later) all my levels have increased, particularly my calcium that is now at 2.86.  COuld you please explain as to why this is so.  I have since developed respiratory difficulties and have a constant lump in my throat that i assume is a post op complication.
