I'm sharing a few links that may be helpful. I have collecting these websites for months while preparing for pituitary surgery. There are so many articles out there. Keyword searches are your friend. Mix it up. An abundance of information awaits you. Ex: pituitary surgery, transphenoidal, cortisol hormone replacement, post op pituitary surgery. Just use your imagination, and it will appear! Dedicate yourself to learning as much as you can about your condition. Knowledge is power.
