Brief Answer:
Not convinced about hyperparathyroidism

Detailed Answer:
Good day,
Noted your concern.

First of all, I am seriously not very convinced aboout hyperparathyroidism. PTH should have been much higher in that case. Is the PTH in pg/ml ?
Could you please attach all the results including the scan?? That would be extremely helpful to assess further.
Regards
Binu

No risk of cancer

Detailed Answer:
Well, hyperparathyroidism does not lead to any cancer. But it can lead to kidney stones and fractures. Kidney stones can not enter prostate.

Comorbidities are: hypertension, diabetes mellitus and prostate cancer. he s currently discharged from the hospital. he s been having very high blood pressures at night like 194/90 and during the day, especially when we sit him down, it falls so low like 90/70 for about a month now. he also started having seizures some weeks ago, about once a week and now, for the past two days, he s been vomitting. his urine is also highly concentrated and sometimes in a day, urine output is less than 100mls. his appetite has also declined and he s lethargic with lots of hiccups. can you please tell me what is happening?

I have neuropathy in my feet and legs. I just started taking 3 gabapentin - 300mg and two metanx every day. When I had treatment for prostrate cancer my doctor started me on Centrum Silver. Is it okay to continue taking this vitamin along with the two prescriptions that my doctor has me taking? My son-in-law thought that the combination of the three pills would cause a high B-12 problem.

My 68 year old husband has a history of kidney stones. He had a lithotripsy 4 days ago for a kidney stone after having a stent placed for a week prior. The stone was intially lodged in the ureter but was too high to have a basket retrieval so it was pushed back into the kidney for the later lithotripsy. He was taken off Plavix and ASA he takes for 2 prior heart attacks. He was taking Hydrocodone every 4 hours for pain. He also has a hx of prostate cancer successfully treated by proton therapy. The stent was removed yesterday. He developed low abdominal discomfort, lethargy, loss of appetite and a low grade temp. He is voiding without difficulty. IVP was done today along with a urinalysis, CBC and chem profile but all is normal. Waiting on urine culture results. IM Rosefin and PO Ceclor was started today. He continues with the low grade temp, now no higher than 100.8 but has no appetite (is drinkining) and falls asleep at the drop of a hat. He is currently taking Acetaminaphen for the temp above 100, Ceclor 3x/day and Protonix. MD does not think problem could be a fungal infection. Just waiting now for urine culture results but my husband is miserable in the meantime. Any thoughts?
