Hi everyone. I'm a 60 year old woman and I had my pituitary adenoma partially removed on May 25th. Part of it was wrapped around my carotid artery so my doctor couldn't remove that part of course.
I had my first injection of Somatuline Depot at the beginning of November. My HGH levels were 815. I just had bloodwork done and they went down to 627. I'm having my second injection on Friday, Dec 1st. Just 2 days away. I'm curious if anyone knows if that is a good drop in the HGH levels for the first month of treatment?
I'm hoping it's a good drop but I've had a bad couple of years health wise so I don't know.
I was excited to find this support group here because I don't know anyone else in my area with acromegaly. My doctor has only one other patient that has it.
I remember learning about it as a little kid when I was in 4th or 5th grade and it scared me. I remember praying to God to not let me get it. Well, I didn't get it then but I got it later.
Anyway, if someone knows about the levels I'd appreciate some feedback please. Thanks so very much!!
Hi everyone,Need opinions. My doctor wants to put me on lithium because my antidepressants havent been helping. I take cymbalta and am wondering what your experiences are with lithium and depression. Does it help?? Still feel like my issue is more spiritual than mental but I am willing to try. Any thoughts? Thank you!
I don't want to do this anymore i just to tired all I do is cry I don't have a family anymore so what's there even left to do I lost one of the few only things that make me happy and ain't got anything else left. There isn't anything left for me
