What are the after effects of parathyroidectomy ?

Cure of high calcium: A parathyroidectomy for primary hyperparathyroidism should cure the hypercalcemia and relieve any associated symptoms such as fatigue, constipation, or excessive urination. There is a small risk of a low blood calcium all the parathyroids removed and/or damaged. If the nerve for the vocal cords is damaged hoarseness may be a problem. Over time bone density may improve and kidney stones reduced.
