Fatigue answer : In my experience the patients who have the highest calcium levels tend to have the most dramatic improvement in fatigue ( usually calcium of 11 or higher). As far as the speed of improvement, some of my patients feel more energetic immediately after surgery and others it may take 1-3 days. Hope this helped.
