Hello @robert25. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm sorry to hear you have had a long struggle with pituitary tumors. I bet that's been really tough.

Here is some helpful information that Mayo Clinic has out on the Mayo Clinic.org site- https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pituitary-tumors/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350553

What type of radiation therapy have you and your care team decided on?

Hello @robert25. Sorry to hear that you have been through such a lot at only 25. My sister-in-law had an undiagnosed benign pituitary tumour for years when she was a young mother. Fortunately hers did not come back. It seems as if radiotherapy will be a good solution in your case because whatever is causing the repeated tumours can be zapped. Thinking of you and wishing you well!

Yes I appreciate it they diagnose it as a aggressive tumor I have a five surgerys the tumors push on my optic nerve wish causes me blurry vision but I believe after radiology this tumor want come back no more im a strong believer in my god I stand on alot of faith cause this can be might depression for me seeing I had five surgerys within ten yrs five major at that
