Has anyone here ever had a high calcium level? About two weeks ago my oncologist's nurse called me to tell me they wanted to recheck my calcium level. It had been 11 (should be no higher than 10, I think). I went on Monday, 12 days later and they called me today to tell me it is still too high,,,now 11.8. They said I need to hydrate a lot and go in for another blood draw next Thursday when I have my appointment with the oncologist. They want to run a few other tests. I've searched the internet (sometimes not a good thing) and got as far as 99.9% of the time, high calcium is due to hyperparathyroidism which requires surgery. Of course I know that I am not normal (haha) since I have RCC, but have any of you ever had this happen. Just wondering....
