I have hyperparathyroid problems. Is surgery always necessary?

DR. FARLEY AT MAYO CLINIC DIAGNOSED ME AND DID SUCCESSFUL SURGERY ON TWO NODES HE FOUND..IT IS BEST TO CONTACT A REPUTABLE SURGEON AS HE IS TO DIAGNOSE YOU AND TO LET YOU KNOW IF SURGERY IS IMMINENT…….

I just saw an endocrinologist and I am elderly so he said I’m not a good candidate for surgery and there is nothing else they can do. There must be some alternative for me.

Thank you so much. I’m having some ultra sounds so will see what he says and I really will get a second opinion!! Thanks again. Glad you came through it okay.

jeannen: If you decide to have the surgery, rest assured that it is the most simple and painless operation ever. I was able to go out for dinner that same evening, and I don’t even have a scar. But it is imperative that you find an experienced surgeon who has done many of these surgeries…..Good luck to you!
