    Talking Post parathyroid surgery tingling

    I am 3 months post parathyroidectomy-2 glands removed by a local surgeon who does these regularly. I am still experiencing constant tingling/numbness in fingers and feet and often around mouth. Calcium is normal as of about a month ago as is PTH. Endo prescribed Calcitriol and am taking 750mg calcium about 5 X a day (chewable Tums). Prior to surgery, calcium 11.9 with PTH at 154. While I feel better on many fronts, this tingling is driving me crazy! It never lets up. It is symptomatic of hypocalcemia or hypoparathyroidism, but both tests are normal. I knew calcium could be low for a few weeks, but this is 3 months. Anyone else have this experience?
