I am not the person with the problem. It is Brad that lives with me who had surgery Tuesday on his right leg artery that had 90% calcium build up in it......Both his legs still do not have softness in them, but he can walk and has gone out now to the bank...He has better condition, but the Dr said that he has calcium still in his right leg and also in his left leg. This cannot be all removed at one time because of his weak heart. Brad will have to have another surgery done again in maybe 3 weeks???? Why had this build up of calcium happen, he is a diabetic, that is not high now. Why????

Good Morning Doctor. I have what has been called calcium deposits/build up along the sides of my nose, spreading out to my cheek areas. They aren t real visible yet, or irritating, they re annoying for me. I don t want for them to get any bigger - do I need to have them removed surgically? What are your recommendations. Is there a home remedy I can try to remove them?
