|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hypoparathyroidism Postprocedural Quality of Life||Other: Empiric use of Calcium Carbonate and Calcitriol Other: PTH based Calcium Carbonate and Calcitriol repletion||Not Applicable|
Enrolled patients will be randomized in two treatment groups. In group 1, all patients will receive calcium carbonate and calcitriol in the post-operative period, with standardized weaning. In group 2, patients will be prescribed calcium carbonate and calcitriol only if their post-operative PTH dosage is 25% or less of the pre-operative dosage, or if post-operative PTH is inferior to 15.
The Short-Form 36 (SF-36) questionnaire (French canadian version) will be used to assess quality of life pre-operatively and at post-op week 1 and 4. Symptoms of hypocalcemia and adverse effects of calcium carbonate and calcitriol will be monitored at week 1 and 4.

Experimental: Empiric calcium and calcitriol repletion group
All patients in this group will receive post-operative calcium carbonate and calcitriol.
Other: Empiric use of Calcium Carbonate and Calcitriol
Empiric calcium carbonate and calcitriol repletion
Experimental: PTH based repletion group
Patients in this group will be prescribed calcium carbonate and calcitriol based on their post-operative PTH.
Other: PTH based Calcium Carbonate and Calcitriol repletion
PTH based treatment
- Change from baseline quality of life at 1 and 4 weeks [ Time Frame: Pre-op, 1 week post-op and 4 weeks post-op ]Short Form 36 (SF-36) questionnaire
- Occurence and change in pharmacologic adverse effects of calcium carbonate and calcitriol [ Time Frame: 1 week post-op, 4 weeks post-op ]A questionnaire about the adverse effects of calcium carbonate and calcitriol will be completed at post-op week 1 and 4
- Occurence and change in symptoms of hypocalcemia [ Time Frame: 1 week post-op, 4 weeks post-op ]A questionnaire about symptoms of hypocalcemia will be completed at post-op week 1 and 4.
