I'm trying to find some info and advice for people who may have been in similar position.
In November of 2018, it was found out that the space that held my gland was enlarged. This led to a MRI which revealed I had a tumor on my gland. After doing 2 rounds of testing with 2 different doctors, I have come out with the diagnosis that my tumor is a secreting tumor with both the cortisol level and the growth hormone. However, it is massive in size at 1.6cm prompting my endo to tell me that I will be having surgery, no matter the hormones , due to the fact it is affecting my vision and causing increased intracranial pressure. So now, I get to face the upcoming surgery date unknown at this present moment with the risk that my gland will be removed due to where the tumor is coming out from (it is sitting in the folds of the front and rear).
A lot of stress for a 26 year old to take in.
So I was just wondering how many people have had surgery to remove a tumor, how big their tumor was, some of the after affects it caused, and if they had the gland removed in full and how the reacted to the medication. My biggest fear is the cortisol due to the fact that I know your body increases it when you are sick and here recently that's all I've been is sick.
