  2. Gina, this is excellent - thanks for posting! (and I too am wondering about the vascular disease and respiratory link...having had some issues with respiratory stuff in particular at times)
  3. Judy and Jess - this is very very cool. While I really feel so badly about what your family has gone through, god love you for using your expierences (and blood!) to help others in the future.
  4. An eye opener and worth reading: Generic Drug Safety - investigation by Self
  5. Thanks, Mary - I found this very interesting as well! Glad to see the recognition, too, about the dex test not being the gold standard after all...and that some of us don't get elevated 24 hour ufcs. I didn't see a mention of the late night serum cortisol test, which was unfortunate, though.
  6. It's a long story on how I came to find this information, but it is very interesting and a significant concern that I suspect is not generally understood. Growth hormone replacement is for more important than I realized....

  8. He's great, isn't he? I'm so excited that your story will be out there in the medical communicty, Cindy! It will help so many. Sorry about the continued csf leak issue, though! Hugs, Linda
  9. Hope you are feeling better

  10. I got interrupted and didn't get to finish listening to the interview, but what I did hear was just great. I wanted to thank Robin and MaryO for setting this venue up, and Alicia for sharing her story tonight. (Alicia - glad you found us!!) It was great to put a "voice" to her posts! (and Robin, thanks too for explaining that all we have to do is click on the link you provided and that we don't have to download anything)
  11. I'm listening right now - this is so very cool! Robin - you are a born interviewer....and Mary, I am loving hearing your story!!
  12. Phil, I am so so so sorry that you are experiencing symptoms and feel like you still have Cushings. One thing I wanted to mention is that sometimes additional tumor can be lurking in places that are not visible during surgery. It is so frustrating, and I'm so sorry. Have you done any cortisol testing yet or gotten a post-op MRI? We're here to help as you face whatever may be next. Lots of hugs, Linda
