Wed, Sep 16 10:37am · Pituitary macroadenoma: Is anyone familiar with Apathy Syndrome? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Thank you mod Colleen! My apathy has become more noticeable in the past five years. I though maybe I was just bored at work and at home – my doctors thought it was depression, but 4 years of varying antidepressants had no effect. It was only recently I read an article in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry about apathy in pituitary surgery patients that I recognized all my symptoms.

I had a pituitary macro adenoma removed 10 years ago and I have developed a severe case of apathy, both in my personal and professional life. I cannot focus or concentrate at work and I have not motivation to either work or pursue my former leisure interests. I have seen some studies on this, but never met anyone that knows anything about it.
