March of 3/2017 had my left adrenal gland removed, tumor producing excessive Cortisol benign, was diagnosed with Cushings now Adrenal Insufficiency. My right gland is sleeping and I am currently on 25 mg of hydrocortisone. Cushing was horrible and i am pretty sure it started somewhere around 2005, when I had half of my thyroid removed, then 2015 the other half removed, down hill ever since. Currently on 99 mg of Armour. I feel pretty good I have Adrenal Insufficiency and other than just having a crappy day every now and then I really can’t complain. My Cortex when removed was half the thickness of a normal one. I am terrified of an Adrenal Crisis because of everything I have read, I never take a stress dose because I am afraid that it will delay the healing of the other one. Plus I’m not sure what that means, my Endo isn’t very helpful or I am expecting to much not sure which. I’m not loosing anymore weight or gaining, lost 50 pound before and after the operation. Is there a chance that it will never wake up, and the stories that I have read about a Crisis just seem to affect certain people. I get light headed, low BP, from time to time, sodium doesn’t seem to be an issue how can part of it work and the other part not work, and how long does it take to wake up. I’ll thank you in advance.
