too much calcium after thyroidectomy?


Posted by KamiliBH

 i just had a total thyroidectomy on monday 12/21.  my calcium levels were a "little Low" upon discharge.  i think i have very faint tingling in my fingers.  my doc told me to take tums and prescribed calcitrol.  i've been taking both (several hours after my synthroid), and eating/drinking calcium rich foods.  is it possible to get too much calcium?  are there symptoms related to this? i just cooked dinner, and while cooking i felt slightly light headed.  also, my bowel movements have been hard and yellow.  i'm just wondering if these symptons are related to the surgery, or just in my head.
