I'm a little bit freaked out. She mentioned the possibility of a pituitary growth and although it can usually be treated by medication, the thought have brain surgery is scaring me.
I’m also on the Rapid Fat Loss diet and by the looks of my hormones im going to end up losing a lot of strength and muscle. With hormone levels like this i feel like it is almost pointless to lift weights untill i am medicated.
Any thought and input would really, really be appreciated.
