Hi. I just joined this site . I had proton beam radiation near my pituitary gland a year ago and my oncologist told me that over time the pituitary would lose function as a result of the treatment. I know that gamma knife is very different from proton beam, but out of curiosity, are you experiencing any particular symptoms that might be related? What inspired you to post make the above post?

Looking for a pit tumor which we didn't find, we found a meningioma in a bad place so did gamma radiation 2 times. I had fatigue and confusion for a while after my gamma, but no issues since. I am finding since having issues for so long that many people are effected by things from head injuries to blood loss so hard t tell if you would have more issues. I saw a few Dr's before I even had that gamma. They can tell you and consultations are usually free

Has anyone had gamma knife radiation for their pituitary tumor? Did you experience side effects? Did it damage your pituitary gland?
