Pituitary Tumors
Hi,

i'm so sorry to hear about your dad's problems! I also have a pituitary tumor. I have a microprolactinoma and am currently taking dostinex to lower my prolactin levels. I only started the drug in november, but all of my symptoms have disappeared already. I don't know anything about asbestosis. However, for the pit tumor, there's a whole lot of information over on the msn message boards....Articles to read and people who have been dealing with tumors for a long time, tumors including prolactinomas, acromegaly and cushings disease, even empty sella syndrome.

there are several men with large prolactinomas that chat. They'd be happy to answer any questions they can.....If your dad's is a prolactinoma. If its a different tumor type, you'll have better luck on the msn boards. Good luck!

I agree totally er the tumour.

As to the asbestosis I suggest you go to a search engine & type in asbestosis, or asbestosis support groups, or causes of asbestosis or treatment of asbestosis (i'm sorry but from what I know asbestosis is basically a killer, it eats away at the lungs of people who were exposed to asbestosis mostly through their work, but sometimes housing) you may be able to sue the employer or housing developer/owner.

I will pray for both you & your dad.
