I have also had some bad news for myself. My calcium levels are much too high and this seems to indicate that I have a tumour on one of my four parathyroid glands (nothing to do with the thyroid in spite of the name). I am waiting for the results of urine tests and then have to have an ultrasound and a scintigraph before seeing the Endocrinologist on 21 April. It is almost certainly benign, but would need removing as it means that I produce too much calcium which would lead to possibly malignant tumours elsewhere. Unfortunately, my doctor has said that she wants this to be sorted out before my mini gastric by pass, so that will not now be taking place next month.
No-one knew if he would survive, but he's obviously a little fighter and has surprised us all.
Fingers crossed for a better luck for us all next week.
