A different perspective

My endocrinologist this afternoon called to tell me she wants me to see a surgeon at another hospital who has more experience in dealing with problem parathyroid cases like mine. He has performed more parathyroid surgeries in the New York metropolitan area than just about anyone else, she said.
Because my latest surgery was so recent -- Aug. 31 -- she said no surgeon would freely decide to open me back up so soon. On a heartening note, she added that my calcium level was fairly stable now thanks to the study drug, so there's no urgency just yet.
