I was diagnosed with a Pituitary tumour and Acromegaly in February 2014. I was told that I have probably suffered from the condition/ had the tumour for at least 15-18 years. I am 39 years old. My tumour produces an excessive amount of growth hormone. My surgery to remove the tumour was scheduled for march 2014. I did the surgery and doctor told me that my tumour is completely removed after 3 month i did blood test to check my GH level and it was 50 so the doctor start injecting me with sandostatin lar30 every 4 weeks, after 2 month we did a blood test and my GH was 2.63 ng/ml and i became happy and started to feel better after another 2 month i did another blood test and my GH was little higher 3.30 ng/ml i still take the injection every 4 weeks but 1 week ago i wanted to see how my GH level will be befor i take my monthly injection and the result was 6.31 ng/ml i was shocked and talked to my doctor and he told me lets take the injection and do another blood test after 7 days. I did and the results was 12.80 ng/ml i called my doctor and will meet him next week i live in Egypt and Acromegaly treatment is not realy advanced here.
can you help me with any advice of what to do or what to ask my doctor.
Thank you for your time
