A Golden Oldie

The adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys.

I was diagnosed with cushing syndrome in February as my cortisol levels were over 300.

A benign tumor was found on my right adrenal gland and it was removed May 3rd. I guess I thought everything would be fine after.  My left adrenal gland is still not producing any cortisol so I am on hydrocortisone.

I wake up everymorning with diarrhea and I am nauseas nearly all day.  I thought this would end after the surgery but now I am losing weight because I am not eating and my Endocrinologist says these symptoms are not due to the cushings and I should investigate further.

I don’t know where to turn?
