I am a long time pituitary patient and have had surgery, and radiation (twice), and currently going through chemo (10 year period). Other than the inconveience of having to go to the Dr. and endless treatments, it really has not been physically bad. Now mentally, it has been a struggle. Even though my family has been very supportive, they do not fully understand the day to day struggles I go through and I have had nobody to discuss my problems with. If you started to discuss your problems, everybody would freak out and want to know if I needed to go to the Doctor. No, I just need someone to talk to, thats all.
