Super healthy -- but hyperparathyroidism got me

Despite healthy eating, regular exercise, target body weight etc my blood test showed high calcium and further tests showed an adenoma on one of my parathyroid glands. If gone untreated it leads to kidney stones and heart disease. The cure is a half hour surgery to remove the bad gland and that cures it 100%. BUT! I can't get the surgery because of hospitals overwhelmed by the virus and my surgery is considered an elective surgery. In the meantime my main symptom is crazy fatigue. Sometimes I feel like I don't have the strength to walk across the room. And I am worried this will give me kidney stones and effect my heart. Now is a waiting game. I've always made my health a priority and now I just wait and wait while despite my good habits this eats away at my health. I guess I am just venting here but it's not a good position to be in. Hope none of you get this -- cause is entirely unknown.

That sounds serious for something that's supposed to be benign. High calcium sometimes indicates deficiency in vitamin D, not just too much calcium in diet. I have iron deficiency anemia, and am trying to correct this via diet. I've had so many things that detox iron from my body, like green tea and NAC and grapeseed extract. But my doctor says I need to see another doctor to find out why I'm not processing iron. I worry about IBS, but I'm trying diet instead. Anyway, it's too late for you to try to correct. Sorry about that.

In Houston Texas, I've heard they are spending a lot of time trying to find hospitals to take patients they can't handle. They have even helicopter flown patients to Albuquerque NM. It is not going to get better until people take this seriously and behave.

I am rescheduled for surgery with a different surgeon on Oct 1. I have seen websites with blogs for people who have had the surgery and the claims are awesome. Return of energy and even thicker hair growth. Looking forward to it.
