I called my doctor, and the nurse said that it was normal and just to take more calcium.
Yes, the surgeon told me and the endocrin confirmed.
I don't take calcium however, as I do not need to take more. I am on vit D and working it out.
It took about 5 weeks for me to wake one morning and think, "holy blue cats...I don't hurt!"
