I had my TT exactly 4 weeks ago and was hospitalized after being discharged for low calcium (I was at .9 when I got to the hospital). They discharged me on about 2400 mg of citracal and 8 calcitrol per day. After the second week my level was on the high end of normal so they cut that in half. After the third week it was still on the high end of normal so they took away the calcitrol and I have just been on 1200 mg of calcium (citra cal) per day. My blood tests this week is 8.6 (through demanding the new endo here to check it after the mayo surgeon told me that I would need them weekly.) Now it is on the low side of normal! The endo here didn't give any recommendation what so ever either. I have a call into the mayo surgeon as to where to go from here. Should I increase my calcium intake through foods, increase my calcium supplement intake, or add back a little calcitrol? I know that nobody is a doctor, but I am not sure what to do over the weekend while I am waiting to here back. Totally confused! Does it mean my parathyroids are not working? The surgeon had said that they were back and going after the two higher blood tests. I should also add that the blood test was first thing in the morning, I hadn't taken calcium since the night before. Any help appreciated!
