Hi I am Lydia. I am a 42 year old single mom that is wanting to improve my life style not only for my health but also for my son. My son is very active in sports and school activities and I really want to be able to enjoy all of this with him. I really would like to be back down to what I weighed when I graduated from high school.

Hi I am Lydia. I am a 42 year old single mom that is wanting to improve my life style not only for my health but also for my son. My son is very active in sports and school activities and I really want to be able to enjoy all of this with him. I really would like to be back down to what I weighed when I graduated from high school.
I have gone through a very hard time medically in the past 3 years going on 4. I was in the hospital with cellulites back in 2011, then I have been suffering with edema in my legs (left more than right), my weight shot up as well during this time I reached a high of 441lbs when finally I saw a Endocrinologist at UM Hospital and found out that I have what is called Cushing's Disease. They scheduled me for surgery this past October to remove the tumor that had been growing on my pituitary gland for at least the last 10 years causing me to gain all the weight. Since the surgery the Edema has gone down a lot and so has my weight. I have already lost over 60lbs since the surgery. Which is really good!! I am on the road back to good health once again.

Welcome to the Cushing's Support Group! Thanks for joining and I'd love to learn more about your story. If you have any suggestions for the group feel free to let me know. We really aren't doing much at this time but would like to do more. Any input would be great! Thanks, again! Rey

I am on the road to recovery thanks to a very wonderful doctor at UM Hospital. He figured out that I have Cushing's Disease and was willing to help me get better. I had to have a tumor removed (which can come back) but since I have lost over 60lbs and the Edema in my legs has gone done a lot. I will be forever thankful to this doctor for giving me back my life. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi ,
We are n the same Spark Class, since we are coming up on our 4th anniversary I thought I would look up my classmates. Very few of us are still active. Stop by the team page sometime! I am still struggling with the weight, but I hope you are finding success! emoticon Dee
