I had surgery February 22, 2013, to remove the macroadenoma on my pituitary. The surgery appears to be successful and my IGF-1 levels are in the "normal" range as of this week. I still feel horrible. No energy, aching all over, my joints are screaming with every movement and I am battling hypothyroidism and very low Vitamin D levels now.
Has anyone else suffered these types of maladies after surgery? I honestly expected that I would feel much better if I were in fact "cured" of something.... but now I am learning that the damage done may be permanent. Why is there so little information available about the long term effects of Acromegaly?
