I still feel like...

...I have been smashed up on my nose and eye... hehe! The eye is running, and sometimes there is a little bleeding inside the nose. But on the whole, I have to say, it has gone pretty well. The worst thing: I had to shave off my moustache and beard, I have had for more than thirty years! My kids hardly recognized me; they had never seen me without it! Neither did I! I also have a lo of headache, so it makes me worried something is wrong.

But it was a ruff week, last week... But I guess it is just wait and see.

Finally I have had... transsphenoidal surgery last week, to remove the GH producing tumour in the pituitary.

Well, it was a little more complicated than just up through the nose, they also had to go in and open up from the outside of the nose, close to the tear duct on one side and the eye, so I was cut at two places during the procedure. Therefore it took six hours, instead of the regular 3 hours for the transsphenoidal surgery.

This was a few days ago...

Everything seem to have been going well, I could go home already on Friday. Tired and weak, of course, but somehow already feeling better in many parts of my body that have given so many symptoms and pain the last several years. Well, I have to wait and see. In a month’s time, the endocrinologists will make a lot of tests, to see what have happened with the pituitary function.
