August 31st, 2010, I had a macroadenomas pituitary removed transsphenoidally by Sandeep Kunwar, MD at UCSF.

I displayed all the typical symptoms for years, but was not “officially” diagnosed until I developed pathological bone fractures.  Even all the fractures were not recognized until a full body scan showed the multitude of fractures.  I feel, with time, I do feel much better.  My body will, of course, never be the same.

The most disturbing aspect for me at this point is memory loss and the inability to form words.  I know words exist for what I’m trying to say…  but I can’t remember what they are.  And my short term memory is a constant problem.

I would love to know if anyone else is having these same issues.  And anything else post surgery.   It is so hard to stuggle with these memory issues with any social situation !!
