... hemityroidectomy.
I have,SLE, RA, many yrs prior , as well as Best Cancer x2 with max rx surgeries.
Have been on 2,000 of oral Calc, and 2,00 of vit D daily since.Had to get IV Calc in hosp post op , since both levels dropped to life threatening.
.Doctors said most pts do not need rx post op but that I was complicated..Endocrinologist as well as genetic couselors think I may also have MEN type 1 syndrome also.
