I am a 66-year old retired French teacher and artist.

Last fall began Cushing’s screening, a year after hip replacement due to AVN.  Referred to Dr. Brooke Swearingen at Mass General by Maine Endocrinologist in December 2011, Surgery Feb 2, 2012 to remove a 3mm pituitary adenoma, excellent post-op, no pain, walked out of hospital after one overnight.

Recovery has been gradual but encouraging.  Lost 20 lbs but would like to lose more…

I would love to compare notes with other Cushing’s patients to know what to expect in recovery.
