After parathyroidectomy

From: Here in Wisconsin - 40 weeks 2 days ago

I was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism, had surgery and was found to have 4-gland hyperplasia, 3 glands were removed and for 10 days felt like ( So this is what life is supposed to feel like!) then went into afib , never had before, and labs showed now I was hyPERthyroid which must have caused the afib. Before I was hyPO thyroid. Then the happiness also stopped. So now am cutting down on my thyroid meds and am gaining weight!!! I thought HYPER thyroid meant weight loss! My PTH is now going up again out of normal range which means I probably will have to have surgery again. I don’t really think I’m eating differently then before. Just so frustrating. Anyone else go down this road??
