Hi, recently i had an appendectomy and recovered quickly. However, my ultra sound test shows that I have systemic calcification: inner wall of my gall bladder, kidney, pancreas. I have not gotten result of my calcium and Vit D test back yet. Therefore, I am not experiencing rhematoid and or joint pain, altough I have little bit bloated feeling. Does anyone has an idea of my problem?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It can be idiopathic and clinically benign calcification or it could be due to hyperparathyroidism. I would suggest you to have serum calcium and parathyroid hormone level.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
