I want to hear from Dr. Norman's parathyroid patients!

From: firebird56 - 6 years 26 weeks ago

I am a recent MIRP post-operative patient of Dr. James Norman. He is well aware that I am in the process of writing a book on parathyroid disease and all of its symptoms. As a matter of fact, it pleases me that we will be making this a joint endeavor.

I would very much appreciate all input you would care to give me. I would even appreciate communication from anyone out there who suspects they have this disease, but are uncertain.

Dr. Norman and I share a mutual passion to get the word out to the world-at- large about the effects of an elevated calcium level and this debilitating disease.

I just had the surgery last week. Dr Norman was one of the surgeons who preformed my surgery. I had a complication. One of my blood vessels was leaking after the surgery and they had to go back in and fix it the next day after the tumor removal. I had two tumors removed and they both totaled about 2500 PTH output yet my local (I live in California) lab results for PTH was always in the normal range. It was only the calcium test results that showed consistently high for several years that was used for diagnosis by Dr. Norman along with symptoms.
All my other tests showed in the normal ranges. Even the scan I had 15 minuets before surgery at the Tampa center only showed one tumor. The other tumor was found manually. I'm certain that if I had the surgery done anywhere else and by anyone other then the team in Tampa that the small tumor would still be inside me and I would not be cured.

I think one of the most convincing peices of information that would make a person choose to only let the surgeons at the Norman parathyroid center operate on them is the doctors/nurses blog. It's unbelievable that almost nobody is proficient in this removal of parathyroid tumors except the Norman team. I read that only 2 days are devoted to parathyroid disease in medical school. So knowing that, I guess it is understandable that this disease is hard to get accurately cured or even diagnosed by any others.

After undergoing this disease yourself, I can understand why you want to write a book. I want to scream from the roof to everyone! Looking at the dates I'm wondering if the book is complete and if so, what is it called?

We don't utilize an endotracheal tube on our patients. That implies we don't put a tube down into the trachea for profound general anesthesia. This patient is sufficiently sleeping so he doesn't feel anything or move, yet he is sufficiently alert so he inhales all alone and not by machine. The medications utilized are like the medications utilized for colonoscopy- - they are given into the vein.[url=http://www.dormicumonline.org/]Get Dormicum Online Now[/url]
