Hi Dawn. Thanks for responding. The physician has not given me any diagnosis since my symptoms are consider mild compared to a classical cushing syndrome patient. They wanted me to do the dexamethasone suppression test and DDAVP test to rule out hormone secreting tumors in the pituitary gland, but I declined since the reason why my health is like this is due to external medication involvemen t (steroid eye drops). The doctors have ruled out adrenal gland tumors due to blood tests and scans. My symptoms and lab reports show that it would be highly unlikely to have a tumor due to mildly elevated results
If you don't mind, How much did it cost for you to visit Mayo per trip (and duration of the trip)? Reason being is that my health insurance is out of network for Mayo, but it is a PPO. I called my carrier, but they did not provide a concise response so I would like to get an idea of how much Mayo would cost from the patients' experience. My main concern is that I might not get the help I need from Mayo but incur a 5 digit medical debt. The last thing I would want is for Mayo to say I don't know or dismiss my symptoms and have to be responsible for a large medical expense. Thanks!
