    Just an update. Since I last posted a LOT has happened. I have had my throat surgery, and my foot surgery. We moved to Canada in 2007 of March. I still have some pain in my lower abdomen and don't have any bleeding at the time. I am scheduled for a endromitrial (spelling) ablation on Jan 30th. My neck is still sore, but I manage it. I don't have any more of the wired symptoms to speak of, once a a blue moon I feel it. It has been a long journey to get this far. It has been 4 years and 2 1/2 months since my adrenalectomy but things are a WHOLE lot better. My weight is still an i
  2. I am learning too. I see that you can now choose to not have replies. I might have to do that on my daily or weekly ramblings too. Nothing like testing and testing and testing for us cushie's eh? WE all end up being pin cushions. Nice to see you participating! Happy blogging... Hugs, Canasa
  3. Definately interested in the magnetic ribbons for your car, I would personally order about 10 of those as well I would order about 10 of the wrist bands. Thanks Mary, let us know if you get them. Hugs, Canasa
  4. Yeah I found it interesting... but I think that in order for it to TREAT cushings, whether it be adrenal, pituitary or ectopic in source, it would have to shrink the tumor causing the high cortisol levles. Just in my humble opinion. It hopefully will be good news for those that have high cortisol readings but NO tumor, or something that can help cyclic patients until the tumor can be found???

  6. Yep, and thanks for your reply Shauna. I figured that. I am also counting on the average of about 18 months to feeling somewhat normal. I don't know if we actually start to feel better or do we learn to live with feeling this way? I know I toughed out my pain in my neck from my ruptures and just deal with it. Maybe that is what happens with this other stuff. We just get USE to it? Go on with life? I hope that it is THAT this stuff does go away, and I hope that it is true that the tougher the recovery the BETTER the cure! Thanks again for the reply! You have helped me over h
  7. Well I certainly hope it helps. I can't even remember why I was on CNN's page today? Good stuff and I hope it gets him closer to feeling better. But what would one do if you are getting adrenal insuffcient? Like what do you do to fix the pit axis problem? I mean if you don't have a tumor, and it is just malfunctioning, what happens then if you are having problems with using the steroids? Something like licorice root or a herb to help get your adrenals going? I am so confuzed about all this. I know I suffer with adrenal insuffciency, there is NO doubt, I get so tired and achey but
  8. Hey Erin, I think that is a great idea, I wear the breast cancer one most days. Hugs, Canasa
  9. Talking about taking 25-Prescription topical corticosteroids... To read more click HERE Canasa
  10. No, I read how they have done some testing on it for acth producing tumors. Type in a search page, Rosiglitazone acth <--- just those two words and see what you read... Interesting. But you would understand many of those med pages better then I. Not for me, for others here. I am adrenal, my acth was low most of the time. Sugars are fine too.. Anyhow, let me know what you read and I know you can make sense of it all.. Hugs, Char
  11. Am I in a closet or has anyone else heard of this drug? Is it new? Anyone know anything about it? Hugs, Canasa
  12. WHOO HOOO! What great work Jayne. AND way to go you guys above.. Yippeee... Good stuff! Hugs, Canasa
