You appear to have Primary Hyperparthyroidism complicated by kidney stones and multiple symptoms -- would recommend an endocrine consult and referral for parathyroid surgery.

Hi Dr Lupo.

Thank you so much for taking the time out to answer my question.  

I have been referred for surgery, my consulant wants to check all 4 of them at the same time.

i am so so sorry to be a real pain but would this be classed as an urgent case with my symptoms and test results?   In the Uk we have a waiting list and have been waiting a few months already so i am investigating the possibilty of a private endorcine consultant as i really can't cope much longer.

many many thanks again
