Report Empty Sella & Vaginal Cushings in News Items and Research Posted April 24, 2012 I have had 2 failed pit surgeries that never turned up an actual tumor. I desperately want the octreoscan, and my husband agrees. The doctors all refuse to do it, and my husband is getting very angry over this. My acth is never high, so no doctor thinks it could possibly be ectopic. I disagree. I don't think there is enough known about this disease to say for sure that it can't be ectopic.
