I am not clear about your story. You have had two pituitary tumors - at the same time? Removed?
What type of tumor?
Did you get any copies of your pathology or your lab tests from the first surgeries or testing?
Different tumors have different recurrence rates. Also, if your tumor was say, wrapped around your optic nerve and part of it was left and not treated with radiation, it would naturally grow back.
