I am so excited to see you post a journal after surgery! I am pretty sure that I am looking at surgery soon and I am trying to find out what to expect. I am in the middle of my student teaching right now and am trying to decide if I will be able to complete it after surgery or wait until next semester. I am very excited that you have that many improvements in 6 days. I hope that everything continues to go well for you! Have you had any of the withdrawls that so many people have described? Thank you so much for your posts!

OMG this is just what I need..........I had my surgery on February 4th, and I am into my 9th week. I am so achey and tired, and I can barely eat. I feel nausous all the time. I am really having a hard time with this, and besides my doctor, I need some advice from someone who has been there. I am just about at my wits end. I cant sleep, and It is everything I have to get out of bed for work. Thank god I have a patient boss because I am totally worthless at work. I dont have any days off left because of the surgery so I have to be here and suffer all day. Please let me know if there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I dont know how much more I can take.

Here is a guide from me:

Cushings Help and Support Boards

Go to the main forums here:



Scroll down to the 4th Yellow lined Bar named CUSHINGS

Cilck on that title "CUSHINGS"

Then click onthe tilte "Treatments"

then click on the title "Post Op Pituitary"

On the top right hand corner you will see a tab marked "New Topic" Click on that and you can post your topic there!



Hope I helped. Not many people see the blog comments. You really need to go to the forums page.

You also need to be a member to post.
