Jodi (Jodi), pituitary bio

I am 37 and had surgery to remove half of my pituitary after finding out I had cushings.

I have had many health issues that started about 8 years ago after the birth of my son. I have a daughter and after her birth my symptoms escalated about 3 years ago. They both have neurological issues which the doctors can't tell me if they are related to my having possible untreated cushings.

After my surgery now I am having adrenal insufficincy which I take replacement cortisol for. I am supposed to decrease my dose; however, when I try my body starts to have symptoms of adrneal crisis.

It has been frustrating to be sick for so long and have doctors and friends treat you like a hypochondriac when you are having real symptoms. Now I have a diagnosis it is a relief. However, I am still very frustrated because I want to feel better and it has been going very slowly.
