Yesterday my parents and I traveled to Cleveland Clinic to get a second opinion from an endocrinologist. We meet with the endocrinologist and his fellow. He seemed very knowledgeable when it came to Cushing’s syndrome. He talked about dealing with many patients with Cushing’s disease. He was also funny and kind.
The endocrinologist and I came up with a plan to speed up the process of getting off the steroids and relieving the Cushing’s syndrome symptoms. He is confident that my adrenal glands will work appropriately after getting off the steroids which is always a concern.
The trip was a great success and I’m happy we went.
