Doctor Doctor Give me the news.
Today I am taking the day off from work to go to my endocrinologist. Sadly, work has been so crazy and stressful that I would almost rather be at the doctor. Anyway, I am sure he will run blood work, and it makes me nervous. I am praying and hoping that this time when I get my blood work results back which sould be in about a week after today, that my PTH levels come back normal. I have been struggling with this for almost a year and I am so tired of stressing about this parathyroid thing. He will also run blood work to check my TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) to see if I need a incrased dosage of my thyroid medication. I hope that level comes back closer to normal also, although that doesn't stress me out as much because I know it would just be a matter of increasing my dosgae. The PTH thing last year they were talking surgery, and cancer and it just weighs so heavy on my shoulders. I am trying to be patient, but I am tired of waiting and being scared everytime I go to the doctor. So I am going to go in there with a positive attidue and hope for the best that this time my levels will have droped down to normal.
