What Hypoparathyroidism Means

I had my thyroid removed due to thyroid cancer. I was told that one of the risks was removal of the parathyroids-but that this was a minor risk.

 

What has this meant? Well the first year after this happened I was really out of it. I found that most of the doctors I talked to were pretty ignorant of the literature on this disorder.

 

The best account I have seen on this is "A doctor's personal View of Hypoparathyroidism" by Denise Adams.
