Ellen's Story...

After almost 25 years of increasingly debilitating symptoms, and many doctors dismissing me as whining, non-compliant or searching for the "magic bullet" that would fix everything, I self-diagnosed on the web using in June of 2006.

It took three more doctors and many hours getting encouragement from this site, the Pituitary Network Association and Cushing's Support before one of them took all my research seriously, and agreed to order an MRI.

On Friday, July 7 2006 I got a personal call from my doctor to tell me that I have a 10mm pituitary tumor! Yay! (I know you all will understand why I'm cheering.) I have an appointment next week to see Dr. Lawrence Kennedy at Shands in Gainesville.... Stay tuned for further developments!
