Post operative wobbles

Good afternoon,

Just over a week ago I was under general anaesthetic for a parathyroidectomy (I didn’t know I had one, never mind 4!!). Now I know that my blood test results are almost back to normal, I am just wondering if the symtpoms I have now got are as a result of having had an op?

The usual pins and needles in my hands has spread to my whole arms along with a weakening of the muscles. My legs are also very much weaker and whilst I am able to walk, it is not with confidence or any degree of speed. My legs actually feel as though the blood supply is just returning after they have been numb, not matter how I place them when sitting. Both sides feel the same.

Has anyone else had experience of post ops flare-ups?

Many thanks for your time, I really appreciate it.
