... Hi Osteo: This is the first I've heard of the scarring. When you first mentioned it I thought you meant scarring from the plugs. I'm using much less of the drops than when I first started. I actually asked if I could stop using them, and the Dr said it wasn't a good idea. The tearing in the beginning was really bad, when they put the plugs in and it came to an abrupt... (17 replies)
... DesertBloom Hi again today! I am glad to hear that you have had all those tests and ruled out more or less some of the worries. Let me know how it goes. I'll let you know too if I have any info on the high calcium. You did mention something else in your post to snowflake that touches on one of my other concerns-Sjogrens.

... Hi Desert Bloom...just wanted to mention that you don't have to have high pth to have a parathyroid adenoma. Most doctors have not yet been educated on this fact yet. I had a large parathyroid adenoma removed and never had a high pth level...not even borderline. According to doc norman on high calcium is sufficient to indicate hyperparathyroidism in 97%...

... Just walked into the house from my Lithotripsy, and looks like they got the stones, as I have blood in my urine. One Lithotripy that I had done last year, I had no blood after, and the stones were still there. ... (9 replies)
... Hi Osteo... I'll try to answer your question, but remember I'm still trying to understand this myself and I haven't had much luck in the research of it either. If you read the Cleveland Clinics paper on Forteo or Susan Ott's as well as the NIH, they all say that if you are taking Forteo and experience hypercalcemia, or an elevation in Ca, then you should decrease your Ca...

... Hi Osteo: With me they put in all 4 at once, into each tear duct, it takes about 5 mins. I've never heard of just putting in 1 or 2, but maybe some people do it that way, or maybe it depends on the severity of damage from dryness. You continue to use Refresh and if you want a rx drop, like Restasis, to keep the eye hydrated. I know that it's not mandatory to put in 4 so... (17 replies)
... Hi DesertBloom-Ok so I am puzzled when you say you had 4 temp plugs put in and 1 removed. I had no idea they put in more than one. Is it a gradual thing, 1 put in and see how it does , then another if needed and so on? Or, is it that 4 were put in at first? Does the whole process require alot of going back to the eye dr.? I thought plugs went in and then you wouldn't... (17 replies)
