The adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys.

I was diagnosed with Cushings in October of 2009 and had a tumor and my adrenal gland removed in November.

I immediately lost about 55 pounds and it took about a year on meds to get back to “normal”.  My other adrenal gland was awfully lazy so it took it awhile to wake up.  My problem now is that I feel it has come back.

I have the hump and back and stomach fat.  My ankles are swealing but nearly as bad as when I had it the first time.  I have an appointment on 9/5 with my endo doc to see what he thinks.

I was wondering if there is anyone on here I can talk with about cushings reoccurring….
