My parathyroid experience

UCLA Health article

After diagnosis I did a lot of research on the internet and saw diagrams - and by accident a complete surgery which frightened me. But when I saw Dr. Livhits, she made me feel more comfortable. I entered the hospital with my husband at my side which put me at ease but I was still apprehensive about going through the surgery doors. The wait did not seem very long It probably helped that I was the first surgery of the morning. The tube in my throat made it sore for a few hours but the painkillers helped. After surgery, my husband brought me a smoothie. I've just had my checkup and all is fine. Dr. Livhits was very thorough. She is calm and has a good sense of humor. She has a wonderful personality and cares like a friend.
