Just back from my appointment. My doctor, who knows me well, said 'sorry to disappoint you but your parathyroid is normal. Every question I asked he answered to my satisfaction, but I'm not sure I could replicate the conversation! Another DEXA in 2 years (I'm 74) and he'll probably retest my PTH in 6 months, but he considers everything normal. The bone pain a year ago was probably a blip he guesses. I'm satisfied, and I'm a tough customer! I'll be lurking on this board though. Always interested in others' experiences.
