I am a Christian who is so thankful to have the Great Physician holding me through all the physical adversities He allows in my life. And I am living in the hope of eternity with my Saviour when I leave this earth, where there will be no more sickness, sorrow, or pain.
Not everyone has issues with renin and aldosterone. Some need replacements, some don't - even with us that have our adrenals removed. It is odd! So not everyone with low cortisol automatically takes florinef - but I think most do.
Just a quick note to let you know that I had my appt. last week. The team of Dr.'s and nurses there were quite adamant that I should have surgery and the sooner the better, so I am currently booked to have surgery for the removal of the tumor on the pituitary on Nov. 18th. Meanwhile we have a trip planned form the 24th of Oct. to the 5th of Nov. to visit our sons in Calgary. They would have done the surgery sooner if we hadn't already had our flights booked. The emphasis of these Dr.'s was on the risk of not having the surgery compared to the Dr.'s here who emphasized the risks involved in having the surgery. I feel confident that I have made the right decision and know that I am in God's hands.
