Mary- Thank you for starting Cushings Support and all youre tireless work- With out of all the information that is here and board members support, i most probaly would never have been able to wean off steroids.

  7. That was my pleasure Mustangsally, I found the artical very interesting..........Below i will add my post opp diagnosis on adrenal gland for extra information on adrenal mass. I had a partial adrenalectomy 18 months ago (Left adrenal gland). The mass measured 4.6cmx3.3 x3. The principal diagnosis- Adrenal cortical Adenoma - cortisole secreting.
