Hi. I'll try to keep this as short as I can. In Oct 2002, I had a pituitary tumor removed via craniotomy. (It wasn't in a position where they could go through the nose) My symptoms were few. Lost all menstruation, elevated prolactin levels. I had gained a lot of weight. Anyway, the pathology reports of this tumor came back inconclusive. They were not able to determine exactly what kind of tumor it was. They said if I was done having children, it wasn't necessary to go on meds to get my period back. Four years later, I still don't have my periods, still overweight. No other symptoms. I am done having children, but worry I may never get back to my normal self. I can go on meds to get my period back, but I've heard the side effects are often unbearable. Nausea, dizziness, and it's ongoing. Is it dangerous for me to continue this way? I mean, is it possible I could develop more problems if I don't have a period for so long? They said it was okay, but I worry.
