Well, now that the colonoscopy is done, I will be having 2 parathyroid adenomas removed this Tuesday, July 10th because I’m suffering from hyperparathyroidism. The scan showed that one of them could be partially within the thyroid, and if that is true, the doctor will have to remove that part of the thyroid. Please pray that this isn’t the case, as my recovery will take longer.
I also had a myelogram done so my neurosurgeon could better determine what kind of surgery to do on my thoracic spine (I am very likely going to have spinal fusion). That won’t be for a while, because my consult with him isn’t until the day after my birthday (July 16th), and surgeries often take place a few weeks after consults.
I am still in pain from the myelogram (it feels like someone kicked me hard in my lower back) and the site is tender to the touch (I have constant headaches too). Please pray that that part remedies itself soon. It seems as if this year is not going well for me. Thank you for all your prayers in the past. God Bless you all!
