@cheryl1 – I’m glad you have a diagnosis but sorry it’s Cushing’s. Actually, I think the hardest time is time spent before getting a diagnosis.
In 2 weeks it’s 10 years ago that my daughter had her surgery to remove her pituitary adenoma. The body will return to normal afterwards. My daughter had gained a lot of weight which caused the characteristic purple striae- stretch marks. Her goal now is to eventually have plastic surgery to remove the extra abdominal skin. She is in good health, working hard and keeping fit.
I hope all goes well with you. Mayo is a great place for this. Whenever you have time and energy I would appreciate an update.
