I did the surgery for my pituitary adenoma removal
I had the surgery for my pituitary adenoma removal last week.
The operation lasted almost 4 hours.
The neurosurgeon went through the upper lip, everything went fine, he was very happy, he removed all the adenoma.
Now I have a very light headache but not all the time, he told me not to worry because it is a normal sumptom of the operation which will go away as the days go by.
My upper lip is still numb and new skin finally came out to both my lips.
The endocrinologist scheduled for me in two and a half months from now an MRI and a Test which will saw if my system can produce the hormones which were bellow the normal limits,  ( this test I can do it only in the hospital and from the results he will determine if I have to change or stop some of the medication which I take).

Day after day I feel better and better and soon everything will be in the past like it was a bad dreem.

Take care
Angelo
