I have Addison disease and perm cious anemia with a neuroendocrine tumor or n stomach, but could not confirm without a doubt cells under microscope were not typical so request for sec biopsy was done. Dr said no note tumor left to biopsy. So conclusion was stay ahead by doing endo q6 months but because I coded due to low oxygen to tissues he won't do another for a year. I am worried because when I coded he found two adenoma and two polyps and now I have nodule on lung. I am worried about Cushing's d due to steroids I have to take. Van ubhelp. I am concerned that I am not getting proper attention van u give me ur opinion

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

If you are having doubts about your care, which is understandable as you have a lot going on, it's reasonable to get a second opinion from another doctor. I say this not because I think your care is lacking, I can't speak to that, but for your peace of mind.

Keep us updated.
