    Unhappy 18 years post transphenoidal pituitary tumor surgery

    Hi Everyone,
    I had endoscopic transphenoidal surgery for a macroadenoma in 2000. They could not get the whole thing out so in 2003, the residual tumor was growing and I opted for "Cyberknife" radiation at that time. MRI's since have not shown regrowth of the tumor but it appears I have a complication of that surgery at this point. I have what they feel is a mucocele in my sphenoid sinus which supposedly is rare which is why I guess I got one. I am seeing an ENT next month and it will require another surgery apparently. I guess my question for anyone to answer if possible, has anyone else had this experience? If so, how was it treated and what was the outcome? I would appreciate any information so I thank you ahead of time.
