Question: Pituitary Adenoma after surgery extreme fatigue


 lynrob - Mon Jul 09, 2007 2:14 pm

I am 61 years old
I am male
no diagnosis of extreme fatigue
Past surgeries - removal of pituitary tumour. regular 6 month check ups. radiation therapy on one occasion as still growing slowly.
no family history of this problem
currently taking Growth hormone, thyroid and testosterone replacements.

My current condition is that of extreme fatigue which occurs at about 12 noon every day, which then leaves me unable to function properly for a few hours. I train 60 mins every day to try to fight off the fatigue.
I suffered from tiredness before the operation in 2000. and even after the operation i am still suffering from chronic fatigue during the day.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

User avatar I would recommend you have a full testing of your pituitary hormones, particulary your thyroid stimulating hormone (as well as your T4 levels) and your cortisol level.

A low level of thyroid or cortisol can cause fatigue.

Best wishes.
