(benign) Brain Tumor
Wednesday, December 05, 2012
A lot has changed since I last posted on here!
I have been to gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, general doctors and have now had a brain MRI.
I'm falling apart y'all!
Okay...I'm not from the South, so that probably sounds completely ridiculous from me.
But here's what's up:
I had a brain MRI last week and they found a small brain cyst as well as a tumor on my pituitary gland.
Thankfully, both are small enough that they won't require surgery. The bad part is the tumor could be affecting the hormones the pituitary gland controls.
My thyroid medication keeps changing, which really hasn't helped me lose weight. In fact, I've put on about 6 pounds since I last updated my SparkPeople, but I really don't want to change my weight!
To be honest, I think it's because it will show up in my SparkPeople feed and I don't need people feeling bad for me or thinking that I'm eating everything in sight.
Yes, I've been giving in to some emotional eating lately, but I was gaining weight before that.
I don't mean to post this for sympathy or pity. But I figured I should update my Spark friends!
I hope you've all been well.
