I just wanted to reach out for some help! In 2017 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and they took out my right thyroid hoping that the left would be OK. It wasn't. 2 months later they went in again and took out the rest. The dr nicked one of my parathyroids off and had to reattach it with a bit of my thyroid. I struggled for 3 years trying to get my calcium regulated but to no avail. I now take 2 calcitriol daily and 4 oscal daily. Now I'm prepping for my RAI treatment and I came across this website. I have had so much pain since my surgery and I have gone to a rheumatologist and an endocrinologist and they keep sending me back and forth and say the other dr will help me. I seriously hurt all day long some days it's so bad I lay on my couch all day. Other days I have muscle spasms and am as weak as a kitten afterwards. I've been told it could be lupus or my low calcium, but the past year it's always been around 8.5 so I don't know. Has anybody else had trouble with joint and muscle pain after thyroid removal?
