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.    


  1. Sending you positive thoughts that everything goes well! I haven't had any level checks but I will do that in three months. About five months after the surgery.

  2. Thank you!!! I too will be sending you positive thoughts as your appointment nears. Keep me posted. Patience is key even though it's tough.
