hyperparathyroid dr. appt
I know that the cure for hyperparathyroidism is surgery. And, even though I have had several surgeries in the past (C-sections, knee, etc) the thought of surgery on my neck almost puts me into a panic attack. I am going to see an endocrinologist, Dr. Bybee, recommended by a nephrologist (I saw him because of all the kidney stones). However, when I google his name, nothing comes up regarding that particular type of surgery.
SO, my thoughts are what types of questions should I ask him other than the regular questions like:
How many of these have you performed?
What is recovery time?
What is post-operative care?
What type of procedure will you be doing?
Time involved for procedure?
I'm hoping those of you who have already had the surgery can enlighten me and calm some of my anxiety. Thanks
