Hello everybody

I got my pit tumor resection on Feb 17 and wanted to give an update.

It has been 2 weeks and I am doing just fine.. I was on my feet the second day. They took the patches out of my nostril the next day. The first week I was so tired I just slept the whole time. The only thing that is bothering me is the numbness on my left side of my head. The surgeon said it is nothing got to do with the surgery itself. It must be the pins they put on my head to secure my head that must hit a nerve. It is slowly going away but it scared me in the beginning. I had headaches that slowly went away in time. I am on hydro cortison as my body does not produce enough cortisol but I did not get my 2nd post surgery blood test results yet to see if it is elevated. ( I had 3.5 in the hospital after surgery, and arnd 8 the first week, it shld be arnd 18 - 20 to be normal) But I feel much better.

So whoever is facing this surgery, just take a breath and relax. This was my second surgery and this time it was thru my nose. The first time was thru my gumline and it took longer to recover. Now I am home relaxing and taking it easy. No bending, no lifting..

Any questions, I will try to answer them based on my experience..

Best wishes to all of you ..

ASLI
