My daughter is 19 years old.
about 4 years ago her periods stopped…looking for a possible cause blood work was taken and she had significant rise in prolactin levels.
An MRI was taken and a prolactinoma of 2mm was found on her pituritary gland.
A few months later she fell pregnant and had a beautiful healthy baby boy…..After the pregnancy prolactin levels were still high but an MRI showed that the tumor had gone ???
Since then (about 15 months) my daughter has gained about 30 kilos, tired all the time hump on her back (neck) a much more rounded face, and her periods have returned but they are never on time. She has also been treated for what they believe was postpartum depression.
Does anyone know if a tumor can just disappear? And what test would you ask for now?
After reading this web site I cant believve that her endo hasnt checked her for cushings.
