Re: pituitary-Microadenoma!

I too have recently been diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma, but a macro. I am still in the process of testing, CAT scan a few weeks ago, the MRI is next week. There are several types of pituitary adenomas and you don't say what you have. Do a lot of RESEARCH. Research pituitary adenoma and look for good websites, org's or gov's and some edu's. The more information you know when going to the Dr. the better off you are. Here are some questions to answer for yourself. Have you had a CAT, MRI contrast and non contrast and ALL the pituitary hormone tests? Be sure and see a GOOD endocrinologist. GET A SECOND OPINION! And, do you have someone helping you go through this to discuss and make decisions on treatment? Parent or close friend? Research ANY drug prescribed to know side effects, etc., including birth control medication. Ultimately, you are in charge of your medical care and have the right to make decisions. BE INFORMED. Good luck.
