Yep, I agree..you've already been through enough already..you don't need any more challenges to have to deal with. Please keep us all updated and know you're certainly in my prayers kind lady. Keep us posted :o)
I started having those after the original diagnosis in 2004 but after a couple of years worth there was no change so, yes, thank the Lord you're ok!! I'm so thankful for you!! I'm not at all sure how much they'll want to start doing MRI's again on me. I'm about 3 months out since surgery again. We'll see. Go back to Dr in St louis next week. How's the weather there? It's beginning to improve here :o)
Yes! I have a limited visual field.in both eyes...this was a concern of my optometrists......I had an appoitment with an ophthalmologist and an MRI within two weeks....am waiting the Ophtha'ls comments.
Wow. I had absolutely no idea what you've been going thru. I am sorry to hear of your ailments and wish you the best of health. Judging by your contributions online u certainly know a great deal and it's terrific that you share your wisdom.
I have a lot of the same issues. I have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism and was diagnosed last year with a prolactinoma. I take cabergoline and last mri showed tumor is shrinking. However, in December I was diagnosed with Addison's disease also and take 20 mg of hydrocortisone. I recently had vision test and my optometrist is concerned because I have vision deficits in my nasal vision area not the area usually found in people with pituitary tumors. I am scheduled for more eye tests and then maybe another mri. Seeking any support, advice. I am feeling better since on cabergoline and hydrocortisone but still get headaches, dizzy, and very tired. I also take levoxyl for thyroid.
I have the size of a 9 benign tumor in the pituitary gland. I have gained weight and cannot loose it. Should I have this tumor removed or continue getting an MRI once a year to see if it grows. Should I have surgery now? I live in Naples, Fl and not sure if there is a better option for me?
Hello, I am curious how you are doing? The last (only) thing I know about your health was they found a small benign tumor in your pituitary. What is your health status? I had an adenoma in my pituitary back in 2000. I had been having health problems for at least 4 1/2 years. I was diagnosed with cushings disease. If you get this I am interested how your health is.
