It depends : Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. What do you mean by failed? Your current calcium, albumin, PTH levels would be needed to really understand your problem (along with the details of the procedure). Back pain can come from many things, but aches can be a symptom of hyperparathyroidism too. Have you ever had this discomfort before?
