I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor in 2005. It was a late stage macroadenoma. I have had surgery, gamma knife radiation and I have had 2 years of sandostatin. I still never feel good. I have lots of fatigue, muscle weakness and I take a lot of medicine. Can anyone give me any good news on this. My email address is triplejent@hotmail.com. I would love to hear from some other acromegaly patients to hear their stories. Mine has been a nightmare. I was sick and not feeling well for quite sometime, fatigue like no other actually exhaustion to where I was nauseated and sometimes vomiting when I got home from work. Finally told my husband that I either had something wrong with my heart or I had cancer. I was having a lot of palpitations and chest pain so I was sent to a cardiologist my first go around and they didn't pick up on it was going to ablate the areas on my heart that were beating irraticaly. I just need to hear someone elses story. Please email me. Thank you. Kayla

hi Kayla, i too had a macroadenoma which was removed in 06 but did not need drugs however i too have profound fatigue and do not feel good at all. I now have bad joints everywhere and have had 3 total knee replacements and have also got Parkinson's disease. My quality of life is doing down the slippery slope. I am under so many specialists but none seem really interested. It is a lonely battle to get well and sometimes i wonder if i ever will but will not give up! good luck. Where do you live? snurff
