Kathy's Story

In December of 2002 I was found to have an adrenal cyst that was 3.2 cm. This was found incidental to studies done for surgical removal of lobular carcinoma in situ of the left breast.

I am a 53 year old mother of two teenage sons.

Prior to this diagnosis I was having a lot of symptoms, weight gain especially around the abdomen, memory loss, insomnia, muscle weakness, depression, fibromyalgia, facial hair and hot flashes. I feel that I have early Cushing's. It has been very difficult to get my physicians to take my concerns seriously.

I was so depressed until I found this resource, I now feel more helpful after reading that others have had success in getting help.
