I attended an appointment with my Mum to see a new Endocrinologist in search of another opinion on the current findings of my blood tests. We sat nervously waiting to be called in. The endocrinologist saw us within a few minutes of waiting. I explained my current situation with my Prolactin levels and all my treatment so far that had been unsuccessful. He read through my current blood test results and other medical history provided by my local doctor, previous endocrinologist and the neursurgeon. The endocrinologist paused with a serious look on his face. He took of his glasses, looking at Mum and I before he spoke, then delivered the bad news. “Unfortunately you will need Brain Transsphenoidal Surgery to remove this tumour in the next couple of months. There is no other option and it’s quite dangerous to your health if its not removed!” I took a minute to comprehend what I was just told. Then Mum and I just broke down. Even the endocrinologist shed a few tears. The next few minutes of this consultation was a bit of a blur because I couldn’t control my emotions. The endocrinologist explained the procedure involved through Transsphenoidal Surgery (Brain Surgery through the nose) and I would require an MRI scan and an appointment with Dr Pullar prior to Transsphenoidal Surgery .
