After constant wondering for over two years, I was sent to see an Endocrinologist about my weight. Numerous tests and an MRI, I was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease.

I am 2 months post pituitary operations and things are lookings up.

Heres to a road to recovery! 🙂

Good Evening, My name is Stacy…I am 1 year Post-Op (2 Pituitary Surgeries in 3 days) and feel absolutely WONDERFUL!

After MUCH reflection I am thankful for what I have gone through. Although Cushing’s Disease is something I wouldn’t wish on any one; I must say I have been and am enriched day by day. Enriched with more knowledge and understanding and the ability to help others.

After 14 years of un-diagnosis FINALLY THERE WAS AN ANSWER.  One, there was the Primary Care Physician who suggested it and there after this Board.

MaryO, without you I would probably be in my grave. Thank You for your dedication and sharing so much of your self with us! PS. Thank You for sending my Dear Friend Anne from Australia: she’s the BEST!

We adore you!

Hi I’m Becky a 34 year old wife, mother of twins and teacher.

I’m having surgery to remove a pituitary tumor this week and am told it will really help to alleviate the Cushings symptoms I’ve had for years!!  I wish I had had this diagnosis sooner but I know I’m lucky to have it now as I had planned on bariatric surgery as my last hope.

When the headaches became too much to handle and my face went numb I was given an MRI and now I know the truth.

I’m new to this, scared yet hopeful.  I’m determined to get control over this but still, this is hard for me.

Hi all!

I am a 24 year old little miss you was diagnosed with Cushing’s Disease in Spring 2010.

I did a ton of tests, including pretosal sinus sampling and MRI’s, and although images and direct location of the tumor were not possible, my doctors were able to confirm a pituitary origin for my cushings.

I had my first transphenoidal surgery in June 2011 and was finally off replacement cortisol by mid november 2011.

In august, as I began to tapper off my medications, I was FINALLY able to loose some weight, loosing 30lbs between August and December.

I stopped losing weight and began another downfall in my stupids between february 2012 until april, at which time my monitoring tests showed my cortisol levels to be again up around the same levels pre-surgery 😦 so sadly I’m looking again into what my life entails with this Cushing’s having resurfaced 😦
