Elisabeth (eals), pituitary bio

I am in the middle of being diagnosed with pituitary cushing's.

Up until today all of the test results had come back very definitively pituitary but today I just received word that the sinus cavity one came back ambiguous - very non-definitive. So my specialist is going to send me to another specialist who is considered to be the expert in this area.

I am 45 years old, turning 46. I have 2 children (9 and 11) and am married. I am a lawyer and my partner is a professor at our local Universary. We live on 5 acres in the country and have 5 dogs, 1 bird, 3 fish, and 1 lizard.

I have been off work since June 30, 2008 and am finding it very difficult to be patient with this illness.

Update March 24, 2009

this is an update to my previous bio.

I was ultimately diagnosed with pituitary cushings and was operated on by Dr. Akagami at Vancouver Regional General Hosptial on March 3, 2009.

I am now in recovery.
