Hello @rea721, I would like to also welcome you to Mayo Clinic Connect.

I'm happy that Erika, @erikas, invited me to this discussion. I don't understand why doctors refuse to remove the stone in the ureter because your PTH is not elevated. I'm wondering if you perhaps misunderstood what they said. I would encourage you to call the doctor's office and speak with either the doctor, the nurse, or a Physician's Assistant and clarify the reason why the surgery cannot be done for the stone.

In the meantime, I would also consider seeking a second opinion about the surgery for the stone in the ureter. Are you seeing a urologist for this stone?
Are you in a lot of pain?

I look forward to hearing from you again.

I did have surgery for the kidney stone. Sorry for the confusion. I was just stating that I have other symptoms of hyperparathyroidism ( high calcium, kidney stones, etc.)but the endocrinologist that I saw said surgeon will not operate on my parathyroid because my PTH level is normal.
