  1. I was lucky my kidney doctor monitored my ca PTH . It was 2 speciaiist who dropped the ball and delayed my getting surgery.
    I contacted Norman Parathyroid Clinic and had my surgery January 2017 the adenoma was the size of my thumbnail. Feeling Normal my bone density scan was surprisingly improved.
