Update July 9, 2007:

hi im just updating my pituitary bio, i had my adrenal glands removed three weeks ago,and im feeling pretty rough,ive been put on hydrocortisone 10,5.5 but ive increased it as i feel its to low after having high cortisol levels of 3000 4 five years,

ive lost nearly 2 1/2 stone since my op on 15th june and its now the 8/7 ,which im pleased about ,but as my easrogen is very low im getting sickness so i can only manage to eat chicken soup,
