Pheochromocytoma

Hello and i just wanted to post my update from the earlier post i had put on. I have had a letter from the hospital and following lots of investigation they now think it could be pheochromocytoma. i have read up on this and yeah my symptoms do point to this disorder. apparently only 0.2% of people have this and they are tumours in your glands of your bowel, they can be benign or maligment but surgery is the only way to cure it and then you have a 10% chance of it coming back. i pray to god it isnt this disorder as im scared of surgery. its all a waiting game now to see what the results were of the cat scan, i will keep those who have been following my problem posted. Many thanks for all your advice so far and kindness you have all displayed.
