  1. I enjoyed the podcast. I had a Prolactin secreting tumor removed in 1979 at the age of 20. Now 57. By todays standards a prolactin of just over 200 would be monitored. I had a transsphenoidal surgery via the oral gums. Now not the approach. I have been on Parlodel 2.5mg for years, very successfully. Hypothyroidism and now an adrenal tumor. My MRI show empty sella. I was told tumor cells were left and if I go off Parlodel prolactin increases. Being a Critical Care Nurse I found the markers and growth differences to be fascinating. I had a great surgeon here Columbus Ohio, Dr. Warren Leimbach since passed. Thanks again
