My niece has had Cushing’s for 8 yrs prior to diagnois. She had her one tumor ridden adrenal gland removed 3 months ago. The remaining adrena gland had shrunk and is non-functioning. We are trying to understand the after affects of the adrenal gland removal and how long it will take for her body to adjust from a 300+ cortisol level to a controlable level so she can be pain free. She is in constant pain and the pain meds are not doing working.

Looking forward to hearing other people’s experience with an adrenal gland removal.
See you on th board!
