I am 65 yo, single, and live alone.
I have a pituitary adenoma. December 5, 2007 I had a pituitary resection, transphenoidal. The adenoma was approx 2.9 cm. A recent MRI revealed a good portion of the tumor remains.
I wear a medical alert bracelet for “Adrenal Insufficiency” and take 20 mg hydrocortizone daily, in divided doses.
The biggest problems I deal with is lack of energy, and inability to lose weight. I’m fifty pounds overweight. Has anyone ever been successful at losing weight?
