For the past month or so, I have been going through some health issues. They found a benign tumor on my pituitary gland that has been messing with my hormone levels. This was after blood work, an MRI, and a visit to an endo. However, the endo wants to be 100% this tumor is the cause of my symptoms (they’re very rare to see with this particular elevated hormone level). So this morning I had to go back for more blood work.
After speaking with my GP (who found the problem originally), she now wants me to come in for an ultrasound to check for issues in my abdomen that could be causing my constant nausea (no, I am not pregnant). I just feel so defeated right now…and I’m getting married this weekend, when I should be happiest! I’m tired of doctors and scans and specialists and needles and everything…and I really need to vent and let it all out. I know you ladies are always so supportive, so thank you! I really can’t wait for this weekend, but I wish I felt like myself and definitely less sick. 🙁

Take a deep breath. Unfortunately, life throws things at us at the most inoportune moments. You can and will overcome this – and you’ll get to continue fighting whatever this is with your new husband at your side. I’m sure you know what makes you feel best, so do those things, eat those things, and get plenty of sleep in the days before 🙂

I would just try and relax. Enjoy your wedding, forget all the “issues” and have fun. Also, I would think that the tumor could be affecting your nerves/hormone levels which could cause nausea… and even a mis-alignment in your back could be the cause. That actually happened to me once, the MOMENT my chiro adjusted it I was better. It is good your Dr is being thorough, but just don’t let it affect you. It could be any number of tiny insignificant things… just focus on marrying the love of your life who will be by your side through anything your health throws at you.

I’m sorry about your health problems. I have been going to the doctor since before my wedding and it’s a pain. But you will be able to make it through this and they will find out what is going on with your body and make you healthy again!

Thanks bees, you ladies are so great! I will definitely make every effort to stay relaxed and focus on how great this weekend is going to be! I got some new medicine today to help with the nausea, so hopefully that makes things a bit easier. Thanks again!

I know exactly what you are going through. I too have a benign tumor on my pituitary gland. I have had it now for about 5 years. Because it is on the pituitary it makes your body think it’s pregnant, so you have symptoms like you are pregnant (i.e. nausea, weight gain, etc.). I am not a doctor, so I would wait to hear from them, but I see an endo and they told me it is completely treatable. I take a pill twice a week that has completely shrunk the tumor and all of the symptoms I had have went away, and will continue to stay that way, as long as I take the medicine. Hang in there, I am confident that it will be okay! Just focus on your beautiful day coming up. PM if you would like to talk.
