My grandmother had acromegaly approx. 35 years ago. She had multiple tumors on and surrounding the pituitary gland. She had to had it removed in the end and has been on Hydrocortisone and Levothroxin. She said the doctors at UCLA saved her life and if it wasn't for them she would have never been diagnosed correctly. Many people say she shouldn't have lived this long but she's so healthy and going strong even in her 80's. I hope this gives somebody hope who has to have their pituitary gland removed.
