Jewell (Jewell), adrenal bio

I am the mother of a 31 year old who had gastric bypass surgery one year ago. Following this her blood pressure escalated constantly.

A new primary care Doctor discovered she had an adrenal gland tumor. She had it removed in October of this year, it was benign. She was diagnosed with Cushings in Oct as well.

She has had many complications, adrenal insufficiency and volume depletion since the surgery. They now claim it is from the gastric bypass. She resists steroids by mouth, has constant diarrhea etc. She is weak, barely walks and can barely get out of bed.
