diagnosed with cushings 2004 after being miss diagnosed 12+ years.

Head a left adrenalectomy for a benign adrenal adnoma.   Been in secondary addisons since.

My right adrenal never fully recovered it makes about 4.5 cortisol.  I average 12-15mgs of cortef per day.

Work full time as a nurse anesthetist, one daughter in 4th yr of college, have a very supportive husband we met in 2004 but did not marry until July 2012.    Bicycling is my passion and like to cross country ski.

Interested in being a support for anyone with cushings or addisons.

Would like to compare notes with any addisions on how they adjust their steriods. I am 56yrs old.
