My tests have just been included in the overall blood testing that the primary care doctor has been doing every four momths. The mg/dl calcium is not signifigantly elevated at 10.4 By the way, he has had surgery for the condition and showed me the scar. I have had edema in my ankles recently and now have to wear compression socks during the day which seems to reduce the swelling.

If you haven't seen an endocrinologist yet, maybe you should ask for a referral. It sounds like you might be helped by a more thorough investigation of the parathyroid. Just a thought for your consideration.

Will you keep in touch and let me know how you are doing?
