You may have read my posts before- hyperthyroid with goitre age around 14 yrs, half gland taken away when 17 or 18, another op and scar to clear up mess of first op, more nodules so full thyroidectomy in 1988 and removal of parathyroids. Lots of health issues since, haemochromatosis, lots of pain, sciatica, depression etc never well, caught everything going and took ages to recover!
Started ndt 7 weeks due to reading posts etc. However had an Endo appointment the 1st of June and I only went along to get my calcium and b12 results. 2.23 and 1236.
Today I received a letter from her saying:
Completion thyroidectomy for multinodular goitre in 1988 (yes, I know)
Haemochromatosis (yes I know)
Hypoparathyroidism following thyroidectomy NO I DID NOT know this!!
In all my years nobody has mentioned Hypoparathyroidism, nobody has tested my levels, vitd, etc etc they used to prescribe me Sandocal until a couple of yrs ago when I said should you not have vitamin d with that? So ok they gave me
My nails break and my teeth crumble!
Please any advise would help.
I have just messaged the fantastic Lorraine Cleaver who has advised I ask to be tested etc
Sorry for rant but very angry!
Thank you in advance!
