I just had a tumor removed from inside the pituitary at cleveland clinic (which I highly recommend).
My drs locally had poo-pooed any endocrine problem until i insisted on further testing – not just thyroid.
Within 6 months i had gained 40 lbs, had other symptoms and was diagnosed. I feel lucky that it wasn’t the years that some people have gone through, although
I am sure my steady weight gain over the past few years could be attributed to cushings. It was only this year though that other symptoms were full blown.
Be your own advocate.
