Terrie's Story...

I have been sick for many years and no doctor could figure out what was wrong until about 2 months ago. I had a CT on my Liver (because I also have a fatty liver disease) and my doctor found a tumor on my kidney. From there I had all the tests done and was told I have Cushing's. The tumor was on my Adrenal Gland and was putting out to much Cortisol.

And on November 5th, 2003, I had my first surgery and had my gland removed. So far things are going good but for some reason my other Adrenal gland is not working so I am on hormone therapy to see if it will start working, if it don't, then I will have to get the other one removed too.

I also have a very small mass on my Pituitary gland but my doctor says that it isn't causing any problems yet.

It is really nice to see other people with the same thing because this is so rare. I just want to say thank you to all the people who are out there who are helping with this disease!!!
