Kathy's Story

I was diagnosed with an ACTH Pituitary tumor (2 x 2 CM) in December of 2006. I had surgery March 22, 2006, but they were unable to get all of the tumor since in was wrapped around the carotid. Surgery went well and I was back to work within six weeks.

I have not had energy levels return as quickly as I would like. Initially I lost some weight and noticed a reduction in my waist line. However, my waist is getting bigger again am worried that the remaining tumor is active again. Doctors are not concerned since blood tests are within normal range. Should I be concerned?

I would love to hear from anyone about this.
