Scott's Story

I had a pituitary adenoma which was producing prolactin and cortisone.

The tumor was removed via transphenoidal surgery 3/24/03 at the UVA. Dr. Laws performed the surgery. The prolacting hormone is zero however the cortisone is still there. It goes from 15 down to 5 during the day. I was released on March 27.

Everyone is hoping I will crash. Just waiting it might take a couple weeks they say.
