My name is Shirley and I am one of the lucky ones. I remember when I was diagnosed in 1996 with a microprolactinoma, I searched high and low to find people that went on to live healthy, productive lives. Here is my story. I was diagnosed at the age of 23 with a 3mm micro. I luckily found the PNA and was directed to the best in Canada. I had transphenoidal surgery in Toronto, Canada in Nov. 1997 (I never went on any meds at the time I was given the choice meds or surgery and I chose surgery by an expert prolactinoma surgeon) and I have been fine ever since. I have 2 kids and a great career. If anyone in Canada or other countries are looking for a positive story please drop me a line. It is possible!
