    Positive 24 hour urine?

    Hi Vicky, Sounds like your neuro is a smart one, and hopefully your endo proves to be as well. There are medications that can raise serum cortisol levels (birth control pills, other oral estrogens are ones that immediately come to mind). You can do some research on these boards to see about medications that interfere with testing. If your tests are positive, you will need to find the source, pituitary or adrenal, and then you will be better equipped to decide what your next step is. Good luck!
  2. I think Dr. F is done. They seem to be doing a Q and A with Gracie about Scentsy.
  3. Where's that cortisol meter when I need one? Is it the holidays, traveling, or just life that's leaving me feeling so run down? Adding a bit of extra hydro for the next few days to see if it helps.

  4. Thank you for all of your help and suggestions on my post about figuring out what to do next. i REALLY appreciate it..a lot.Hope you are doing well and I hope your holidays are bright~Hugs

  5. Why is my acne worse post-op? Any ideas on how to treat it?

      I'm not post-op, but the one thing that has worked amazingly for me is Oracea.

  6. Withholding hydro makes me feel like garbage. I hope this is a good thing.

      Sorry you feel bad, but sounds like a good thing.

  7. Starting to wean today. Down 2.5 mg for the next week and see how it goes.

  8. Giant piece of NJ just came up with the morning phlegm! Oh, post-op life, how I love you.

  9. Finding that 3 doses of hydro instead of 2 makes for a better day.

  10. First post-op sneeze tonight - OUCH! Didn't see it coming and now my head hurts. A LOT.

      Yeah, it's kinda hard to remember to sneeze with your mouth open when they sneak up on ya so fast.

  11. Cushie friends - I am out of the hospital and home in my own bed. Looking forward to life without Earl!

  12. Stupid DI. Means gotta stay till Sunday.
