It is highly likely: While it is very likely you do have hyperparathyroidism, it is much more difficult to decide if watchful waiting is the best approach. If you have no signs or symptoms that are likely to be due to hyperparathyroidism, most experts would not suggest surgery if the calcium stays under 11 mg%. It would be reasonable to see an endocrinologist on a yearly basis to revisit options as time goes on.

May/May not: This calcium value is slightly high. So it should be repeated one more time to see if it is real or progressive. If it is still high, you should go back to your previous doctors who helped with your prior operation for the parathyroid adenoma.

Recurrent HPT: You have Hyperparathyroidism again. I would see an experienced endocrine or head and neck surgeon who will confirm the diagnosis, order appropriate imaging, and describe your surgical options.
