Mon, Mar 25 2:21pm · Pituitary macroadenoma tumor and short term memory loss. Help!! in Brain Tumor

Hello. I am desperate for advice. I had a large pituitary macroadenoma removed on 1/1/2019. The surgeon got it all out. Before the surgery, he said there shouldn’t be any complications post op. I had and am still having lots of issues. Tens days post op they discovered I had hospital acquired menigitis. They took care of that with antibiotics. I also had DI that turned into SIADH. I’m on a loose fluid restriction but my sodium bottoms out easily. I am extremely lethargic all the time. But the worse is short term memory loss and feeling like I’m in a fog all day. Sometimes I can’t remember things from one day to the next. I am an RN and am devastated. I was in perfect health till all this happened. I found a thread on here and have tried to reply but not having any luck. The thread had these names in it @dawnpereda @kdubois. This thread mentioned about seeing a neuropsychologist who could do cognitive behavioral therapy. I am willing to do anything. Does anyone have any suggestions. I just want my life back. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Could you provide more information on the CBT? What is the name of the doctor you are seeing? I’m in desperate need for that therapy.

@kdubois Hi Kelly. Could you help me with the doctors you saw that got you on the right track. I have had a tumor removed as well and am experiencing the same post op symptoms. I’m trying to get on the right track.
