I was diagnosed with an adrenal tumor which is 4.3 cm in diameter as of 11/08. I have menopausal symptoms, weight gain, water retention, pain and fatigue. All my blood work has come back so they say normal and so I have to wait for it to grow before they will remove it. I feel that I am being ignored by the doctors. I have been told by 3 surgeons in the St. Louis area that they will not remove it until it get 5 cm. I don't know where to turn or what to do. I have put on almost 40 lbs since June 08. I feel it is because of this tumor but I have been told that it is of my own doing. Any advice or encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
