I Got My Energy Back

UCLA Health article

I felt sharp pains in my stomach for several days. The pain continued to escalate so I called 911 and they took me to the emergency room. I was put in an induced coma for several weeks and when I woke up I could not walk or lift my hands. They did scans and found a parathyroid tumor. The combination of calcium from the parathyroid and the effect of drinking on my liver had caused my pancreas to explode. I probably had the parathyroid tumor for a while. I had felt low energy and thought it was from getting older. Now I feel back to normal. Dr. Livhits did the surgery. It probably could have been outpatient if I wasn't having the other health problems.This has been quite a journey!
