Hi, I had a left adrenalectomy back in May and have been on hydrocortisone tablets ever since, gradually reducing. My left adrenal gland was removed because I had a benign tumour in there. This adrenal gland had been creating way too much cortisol and the right adrenal gland had shut down. Ive effectively gone from Cushings Syndrome to Addisons without all the side effects really. The tumour was discovered from an MRI resulting from investigations regarding high blood pressure. Anyway, the upshot is that my cortisol levels are now struggling to increase so it looks like I will be on the hydrocortisone for some time yet and I have been advised to wear a medical alert bracelet incase of an emergency. I have looked at these bracelets but I'm not sure what to have engraved on the disc. Does anyone else have one of these and if so, what do you say on yours please?
