Again, if you don't feel well and aren't getting enough information from your doctor, please keep digging like I did until you get the answers. We all know our bodies better than anyone else. TRUST your personal instincts.
I am doing this again now by taking a couple extra days off to rest. This surgery and all the knowledge that has come with it has taken a lot out of me and I am listening to myself and resting when I need to, which seems constantly! I still have a sore throat but my neck pain is almost gone. The incision is starting to itch which is a good sign. I will probably have a very small scar at the front of my throat but it will be a reminder to me of the strength and perseverance I had to live with this illness for the past decade and to forge my own path to healing.
Although I am deeply disappointed that it took so long for this to be diagnosed and that none of the doctors I have gone to seemed to know about parathyroid issues, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Jim Norman for his Center, website, compassion, knowledge and kindness. The service and staff was exemplary! His center should serve as a model for all other medical centers!
