Hi I'm Lynn, I'm 18 and just finishing up my freshman year at college, when I was 14 I was diagnosed with cushings disease caused by a pituitary adenoma, benign. On June 24th, 2008 I had brain surgery and the adenoma was removed, I recovered over the following months and was weaned off very high doses of cortisol, until finally I was deemed okay. I was desperate to find this website recently because I noticed my face become a bit bloated, as well as my stomach, back, chin etc. I'm worried my cushings is returning, or some other kind of endocrine disorder. Therefore I decided to become active on this site again, just in case.
