Good news first: I don't have a tumor on my pituitary gland.
He did another ultrasound. No growths on either ovary. I've lost count of how many clear scans I've now had in a row. Two? Three? Either one is a good number!
My prolactin levels are still elevated, though, so I'm going on Dostinex to lower them. I'm happy he chose this medication because 1) I only need to take it twice a week, and 2) it has less scary side effects than Bromocriptine - specifically nausea. I was worried about that. I start the medication immediately.
Now for the "eh" news.
He's still confused as to why my prolactin levels are suddenly high and he's running more blood work to try and figure it out. I never knew there were so many hormone levels in a person's body to check, but I'm finding out about all sorts of new blood tests. I'm trying to reach a record on how many times I can visit Labcorp in one year. I guess I should be happy. All of my previous doctors would have put me on the medication and stopped trying to figure out "why." It's nice that he's been extra thorough.
And my MRI did show something. It's not related to my pituitary gland. It's my sinuses! Apparently, the radiologist's impression was the I have a "significant sinus disease." So it's off to the ENT I go for a consult sometime in the next month or two to see what's going on. This shouldn't surprise me, since my mom had surgery on her sinuses when she was in her 30s. I'm not even going to rant about my "excitement" of having to go to yet another doctor/specialist. Hopefully this is an easy fix.
Always something, right? :)
