I had my thyroid removed 4/29. On 5/2 I experienced severe tetany. I could not speak or move any muscles in my face or hands. It was like I was temporarily paralysed. My calcium levels were above 7, but the fix was IV calcium. I was re-admitted to the hospital and ok withing 3 days. Has anyone else ever experienced this? I am now preparing for my scan and radiation. Does anyone have any advice?
