      I just had pituitary surgery a month ago to remove an adenoma. Hoping that my Chushing's symptoms caused by it get better not that it's gone.

      What does your endocrinologist advise? Usually, a CT/MRI and labs are used to confirm a pituitary adenoma, determine if it’s secreting excess hormones, and help your endo determine the best course of action. Additionally, endocrine related disorders can wreak havoc on one’s metabolism. I have hypothyroidism, and it took quite a lifestyle adjustment (along with thyroid meds) to maintain my weight. Talk to your endocrinologist.

      See an endocrinologist. If it’s prolactinoma there are medications like cabergoline to help shrink it

      What kind of tumor is it? Can it be radiated?
