Hi, just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar to this: I had parathyroid surgery a week ago, after a malfunctioning parathyroid was identified by a nuclear scan and an ultrasound. I decided to go for the surgery because of advancing osteoporosis, not wanting to take the bisphosphonates etc.
In the last couple days, I've experienced aching from my lower back down the backs of my legs. I haven't been back for blood testsyet to check PTH and calcium (although I know that the PTH had dropped after the op). I honestly can't say whether this is bone or muscle. It's hard to describe.. not pain, more of a generalized aching feeling (especially sitting, not as much standing).
I've started taking calcium supplements in case it relates to low calcium.
Worried now that this is my future because I was fairly asymptomatic before this op, and doing a lot of exercise.
Has anyone experienced similar?
