Confused.. possible pituitary surgery + HRT


Hi guys

I am deffo back to WTT, Endo said I need to be careful till I see her. Once I get the all clear on my bloods will consider going back on the pill for a month or so.

Basically I have a brain lesion, a little growth on my pituitary gland. I have had problems with my pituitary since I was 2 years old. Am now 25. She is going to check all my scans from when I was little then I go back in 3 months. If it is a new brain lesion she will suggest surgery, which means HRT for the rest of my life... dont really know anything about it - could anyone help please?

My OH just lost his dad, so I am keeping things light and told him its all okay, not to worry but really I am a bit shell shocked

She said during pregnancy the pituitary swells up anyway so she wouldnt advise me falling pregnant right now - could loose parts of my vision etc. To wait and see her again and she will discuss all the options for me.

We had planned to wait until after we got married and I qualify as a soclicitor..but obv we may not be able to wait if I need this surgery. Just a bit confusled..know all I can do is wait for next appointment..just needed to speak to someone

Hope its okay guys

Thanks in advance xxxxx
